Phishing Simulation

The five most common attack types that social engineers use to target their victims are phishing, pretexting, baiting, quid pro quo and tailgating. More than 40% of all information breaches result from this malicious online activity, with 98% of these incidents carried out by phishing, according to the 2017 Verizon Data Breaches Investigation Report.

Phishing uses targeted messaging to steal information or gain unauthorized access to computer systems. It is primarily conducted via email but can come in the form of voicemail, SMS texting and even social media posts. Phishing attempts ask you to provide sensitive information, encourage you to click links, or urge you to download attachments.

Purdue’s CyberTAP team provides Phishing Simulation Education to test your employee’s with computer access of their susceptibility to clicking on suspicious links, opening unsolicited attachments, and sharing information with unverified websites.  Point-in-time training occurs in the event that an employee interacts with a phishing message.   This timely remediation training addresses what to look for and how to respond to suspicious messaging.  Monthly security awareness reminders, flyers, and training are made available for all active phishing simulation clients.
