Training to Prevent Advanced Phishing Techniques
Our training focuses on advanced forms of phishing, including “spear phishing” and “whaling.” Unlike mass phishing, these tactics involve cybercriminals targeting specific employees or top executives of companies.
Spear Phishing. In this attack type, perpetrators identify specific targets in the company and create highly individualized deceptive scenarios.
Our simulations of spear phishing involve various tactics, such as communication via LinkedIn and other social networks, simulating messages from colleagues, clients, or partners to closely replicate real attack scenarios in a credible way. This form of training prepares individuals to recognize and thwart these sophisticated phishing attempts.
Whaling.Whaling phishing targets the key executives and individuals who make strategic and other critical decisions.
During simulations, we enact methods and scenarios involving offline correspondence, the imitation of requests from key clients, partners, investors, government entities, etc., aiming to assess how much the top executives are ready for such sophisticated attacks
Our training not only identifies the vulnerabilities in your defense against such attacks but also focuses on strategies and methods specific to each type of phishing. By doing so, we enhance awareness and readiness among top-level decision-makers to counter these particular threats effectively.
