Phishing is a type of social engineering attack in which cybercriminals trick victims into handing over sensitive information or installing malware. More often than not they do this via malicious emails that appear to be from trusted senders.
While technical security measures continue to improve, phishing remains one of the cheapest and easiest ways for cyber criminals to gain access to sensitive information. Simply by clicking a link, victims can endanger their company’s security and put themselves at risk of identity theft. They might also compromise their personal information, login credentials such as usernames and passwords, and financial information, including credit card numbers.
Custom Phishing campaigns
Apart from the existing templates, you can customize scenarios based on personal information, creating targeted spear phishing campaigns. Each Phishing Template can also have its own Custom Landing Page, which allows for point-of-failure education and specifically phish for sensitive information. Your customized Phishing Templates can also include simulated attachments in the following formats: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF, (also zipped versions of these files).
