Phishing – it happens to everyone.
But is everyone able to spot the signs and prevent the harmful effects?
When someone goes fishing, they usually put bait on a hook and cast their line to try to catch a big fish. Phishing uses the same concept, except using electronic communication, like email or text message, and the goal of the person baiting their intended victim – or victims, more likely – is to obtain sensitive information, like user names, passwords, credit card numbers, or other personal details that can be used maliciously.
The bait in the case of phishing is a message intending to send the victim to a fraudulent website that is disguised to look very (sometimes, very, very) much like the real website the victim thinks they’re visiting.
Is everyone able to spot the signs?
Today’s cybercriminals are employing increasingly sophisticated methods to ensnare victims, and it’s up to you to defend your IT systems using equally sophisticated cybersecurity programs.
Tier One Technology Partners aims to prevent damage to networks and IT systems from sophisticated phishing campaigns with a proactive approach. Our Cybersecurity Team plans a Phishing Campaign, creating custom emails sent to employees company-wide to identify weaknesses from operator error as part of an all-encompassing approach to employee education and training.
Active campaigns at scheduled monthly intervals support these education and training initiatives, and reinforce specific training areas where weaknesses are detected, as with external versus internal communications.
Tier One Technology Partners and Phishing Campaigns helps you keep an active heartbeat on the knowledge and capabilities of your team through a practical lens, and improves tactical response to potential threats, increasing overall awareness.
