Phishing as part of cyber security

A phishing campaign complements the security audit and gives an insight into the company's security. It can be carried out independently as a quick introduction to cyber security or as part of a complete audit project. Awareness for social engineering is a continuous process that must be constantly repeated, varied and improved. Phishing attacks have increased dramatically and are trending upward. Protect yourself from phishing attacks!

What is phishing?

Phishing is an inexpensive gateway for cybercriminals to enter the corporate network or spy on sensitive data. The attacker uses e-mails or fraudulent websites to try to obtain information such as access data or to plant malware. As a supposedly trustworthy counterpart, the attacker exploits the victim's credulity: perfidious tricks are used to encourage the victim to enter sensitive information in false domains (typosquatting) or to download malicious files. Phishing is one type of social engineering and is very popular as cyberattack, as criminals can make big money with little effort. The likelihood that employees will fall for the scam is very high; humans are the weakest link in the security chain.

The best protection is trained employees who know the threat scenarios and pay attention to IT security in their daily work.
