What is a phishing simulation?

A phishing simulation service lets you send fake phishing emails to test your staff’s vigilance and identify any weaknesses in their security training.

By sending your staff phishing simulation campaigns, you can check if your team are prone to clicking unsafe email links, opening attachments or falling for social engineering attacks. You can then follow up with individual users to address any training needs.

Benefits of using a phishing simulation

A phishing simulation platform is just one tool your organization can use to maintain strong front line defenses and prevent security breaches.

When combined with staff phishing training, phishing simulation campaigns allow you to teach your staff how to detect and avoid phishing attacks.

A phishing simulator, such as the integrated tool in Defense.com™, can help to reduce the risk of a cyberattack at your organization and improve staff security awareness.

Frequently Asked Questions

A phishing email is a type of social engineering where an attack will pretend to be a genuine company employee or supplier, with the aim of deceiving users into giving up sensitive company information such as passwords or financial information. Hackers will generally then try to use this to inflict further damage to an organization, including stealing money and data.

Phishing simulation usually involves sending targeted phishing emails to staff in order to test their vigilance against fake emails and see how they react. Phishing simulation campaigns should be used in conjunction with phishing training to ensure that staff learn how to spot and avoid attacks and test their knowledge regularly.

Using a phishing simulation tool will help your organization to maintain strong front line defenses and prevent security breaches. Carefully constructed phishing emails can identify any weaknesses in staff training and awareness, allowing you to remediate risks before a real phishing attempt is successful.

Phishing simulation vendors generally let you send fake emails to users, including a link to a web page that asks for sensitive company or personal information. For example, this could be disguised as a password reset email. Your phishing simulation service should then provide you with detailed stats, showing which users fell for the fake phishing attempt and allowing you to follow up with further training as necessary.

You can get access to a fully integrated phishing simulation tool as part of any Defense.com™ package.
