terreActive strengthens cyber security at Kantonsspital Aarau
with phishing simulation and awareness training

Phishing: Effective protection starts with the employee

Phishing is one of the biggest gateways for cyber criminals.one wrong click on a fake e-mail - the consequences for a company can be devastating. terreActive conducted a simulated attack at the Kantonsspital Aarau and sensitized the employees to the dangers with an awareness training. As a result, the hospital is now prepared for possible attacks.

Putting security awareness to the test

The Kantonsspital Aarau, or KSA for short,is the largest hospital in the canton of Aargau, with over 30 treatment and diagnostic centers, around 4,600 employees and over 28,000 inpatients. A package of various measures has proven effective against phishing attacks:

  • Anti-phishing strategy
  • The right tools
  • Awareness training

For support with these measures, the KSA turned to terreActive.

With its 25 years of experience in cyber security, the company was the perfect partner for this task. terreActive conducted a phishing simulation and awareness training for the KSA. The first step was to simulate a phishing attackon the company in order to find out the current state of the threat and the degree of awareness already existing among the employees.


In the past, the issue of security awareness among employees had not been addressed in detail. It was therefore a correct and important decision on the part of those responsible for security at the KSA to address this issue.
