Explore how Tiryaki bolstered its defenses against phishing attacks by 89% and reduced costs related to handling phishing scams at its ports by up to 80%.

Case Study Icon


Tiryaki, a distinguished global agricultural company with half a century's experience, commands an impressive presence across 40 sourcing and 50 distribution countries. The company's robust and far-reaching supply chain contributes to an impressive annual turnover of $2.5 billion.

With a diverse workforce of 1100 employees spread across multiple locations worldwide, including various ports, Tiryaki has increasingly been the target of ongoing phishing attacks. These attacks pose significant threats to the company's assets and reputation and are particularly challenging to manage due to the geographical diversity of the employees. The phishing attackers have focused their efforts on the many ports that Tiryaki operates from, making managing these attacks even more complicated.

Tiryaki is drawn to Keepnet Labs' comprehensive, automated, and scalable solution to phishing threats, which also incorporates a continuous training program for monitoring employee behavior and tracking progress. This multifaceted solution, tailored to Tiryaki's diverse and globally dispersed workforce, aimed to bolster its digital defenses and safeguard its valuable assets and reputation.

Successful Outcomes

  • Tiryaki achieved an annual Return on Investment (ROI) of $10,740.
  • The potential financial loss was reduced by $154,616 per year.
  • In just 12 months, Tiryaki's employees improved their ability to identify phishing attempts by 89%.

Unraveling the Consequences of Phishing Attacks

Without a structured defense against phishing, Tiryaki faced the risk of severe threats. Handling human risk, responsible for 95% of cybersecurity incidents, was especially challenging due to its vast international presence. The implications of these attacks are critical, as a single phishing incident can cost businesses an average of over $1 million.

  • Legal compliance: Tiryaki's industry regulations mandate regular cyber threat training for employees. Non-compliance risks legal penalties.
  • Financial impact: Successful phishing attacks that cause data breaches or ransom demands can lead to significant monetary losses.
  • Reputation: Any data breach could damage trust among customers, employees, and partners, affecting Tiryaki's reputation.
  • Operational Disruption: Handling suspicious activities or actual attacks can disrupt regular business operations.
  • Identity and Fraud Risks: Phishing attacks often steal confidential information, leading to identity theft and potential fraud.

“We trained 1,100 global employees, achieving an 89% phishing identification success rate within a year. This program bolstered our defenses and enhanced our security culture. Financially, we've seen a yearly ROI of $10.740 , prevented losses of $154,6167, protected customer data, and safeguarded our reputation.”
