Roughly 95% of successful cyber-attacks begin with a phishing e-mail, which aims at acquiring sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords and credit card information. In these emails, hackers pretend to be a trustworthy entity in order to fool users into supplying sensitive information.
Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail spoofing or instant messaging and often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one. Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to deceive users, and exploits the poor usability of current web security technologies.
Running a phishing assessment campaign with Hammer IT Consulting can dramatically reduce the number of users who click on unsuspecting e-mails. Our goal when running these phishing assessments it to educate users about their vulnerabilities and what to look for when they are being targeted. We want to empower users to utilize the new-found knowledge they gain to further protect themselves and your organization.
We will work with you and your organization to define the assessment, its metrics and the degree of difficulty. We will then track the proper data and frequency of the assessment. Once the phishing assessments are complete, we will provide you and your organization with detailed results and post-assessment activities.
