We send your staff fake phishing emails so they’re better prepared to deal with the real thing
Once you’ve been fooled by a scam (or “phishing”) email, you’re less likely to make the same mistake again. It’s the kind of practical lesson that theory alone can’t teach.
Problem is, that kind of wisdom can come at a high cost.
Our ScamProtect Phishing Awareness Test delivers a phishing lesson without the sting.
We send your staff a series of emails designed to look like phishing emails. Only difference is, these emails are completely benign: fake phishing emails which don’t follow through on a scam.
They give your staff the practice and experience they need to deal with real phishing emails – the ones that could actually cost you.
- Your staff have a better idea of what to do.
- You know how prepared your organisation is.
- You lower your risk of financial loss.
How the ScamProtect Phishing Awareness Test works
We craft a series of emails designed to look like phishing emails
These have all the hallmarks of a scam email. A sender the recipient doesn’t know, an unsolicited link, spelling and formatting issues. They’re as convincing – or unconvincing – as a real scam email.
We send at least two of these to all staff – plus a special email for senior staff
This special email is a custom “spear-phishing” email designed to target someone with access to accounts. It can be almost indistinguishable from a real email. No errors, no dodgy wording – but with the very real intent of getting access to accounts the sender shouldn’t have.
If the staff member clicks, they’re led to a harmless website
The website is one created by CommArc, where the users sees an explanation of what just happened. There’s no risk to the user or your systems.
We provide you with a full report of the results
Once the test period is up, we give you a custom report with all the details. How many people opened the emails, how many and who clicked on them, examples of the emails we sent and recommendations to help your organisation respond to phishing emails better.
We can take your staff through optional training
If you find your staff need a little more guidance about how to identify and treat phishing emails, we can come and take them through all the ins-and-outs: how to spot phishing emails, what to do and any common mistakes made during the test.
