Phishing Simulator & Awareness Educator

In 2020, the global average cost of a data breach amounted to 3.86 million U.S. dollars according to Statisca (2020) and data breaches cost UK organisations an average of £2.9 million per breach. Moreover, according to Verizon, human error is the reason for 90% of breaches. These facts are enough to convince people security awareness training is important.

Security awareness training is critical since threat actors are always looking for new ways to attack and the threat landscape is continually changing. The most vulnerable asset in organisations today is people; the employees. Criminals know people can provide much more to make their exploits successful and to train people on how to identify and stop phishing phishing attacks is critical.
Keepnet’s Phishing Simulator is a cyber security program that allows organizations to send benign phishing emails that look real but are completely fake to their employees to test their users.

Phishing tests are designed to allow employees to detect phishing attacks and their variants and report them appropriately, and are also used to detect weak links and measure the effectiveness of security training programs. The Phishing Simulation module is fully-integrated with our Awareness Educator to automatically place employees who are caught by our phishing simulations onto appropriate e-learning courses to improve their vigilance to genuine phishing attacks.
