Prevent cyber incidents by changing employee behaviour.


Malicious phishing emails are one of the main ways businesses can be compromised. If successful, these campaigns can open the door to more sophisticated cyber security attacks like ransomware. According to the UK's National Cyber Security Centre, ransomware attacks on UK businesses have increased substantially in the past year. This has caused the cybercrime industry to grow to an estimated $1.5 trillion, and is projected to quadruple in the next two years. 


To defend against phishing, individuals and businesses need to become aware of common phishing tactics and take steps to protect themselves. This includes not opening suspicious emails or clicking on links in emails, using strong passwords, using two-factor authentication, and using a reputable antivirus software. 

The best way a business can defend itself from phishing is through a robust and repeatable Cyber Security Awareness Programme, which must include regular phishing simulation exercises.

Why is it important for employees to know about phishing? 

Businesses are at significant risk from phishing scams, as cyber criminals use them as an easy and effective way to gain access, spread malware, and steal money. What's worse, they often target the soft underbelly of an organisation's cyber security posture: humans. As a business's first line of defence, employees must learn about common phishing tactics and take proactive measures to protect themselves and their organisation. It's vital that employees understand the risks and consequences of phishing attacks, and learn how to identify and respond to them. This will ultimately strengthen your organisation's overall cyber security posture and safeguard it against potential threats.

PhishProof Researchers reveal “organizations sending simulated phishing attempts to their employees once per month decrease their phishing susceptibility rate to 4%”.

5 ways to prevent phishing

Phishing scams are on the rise and can cause significant damage to individuals and organisations. Knowing what likley phishing attacks look like is a proactive step to protect against these types of attacks. 
  • Be cautious of unsolicited messages

    If you receive an email or text from an unknown sender, or from a sender who you don't normally communicate with, be wary of it. Don't click on any links or open any attachments unless you are sure they are legitimate.

  • Don't reveal sensitive information

    Never give out sensitive information, such as your login credentials or financial information, in response to an unsolicited message. If a sender is asking you for this type of information, it is most likely a phishing attempt. Trust your gut and don't click on any links or provide information if something seems not right.

  • Be aware of the signs of phishing

    Phishing messages often include urgent or threatening language, or they may try to create a sense of urgency by claiming that your account has been compromised. They may also contain spelling or grammar errors, or they may use a fake sender name or address.

  • Use security software

    Install security software, such as antivirus and anti-phishing software, on your devices to help protect against phishing attacks. Use technology solutions such as email filtering, browser extensions, and security software to provide additional layer of protection against phishing scams.

  • Keep your software up to date

    Make sure to regularly update your security software, as well as your operating system and other software, to ensure that you have the latest protections against phishing and other online threats.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cyber security can sometimes seem like a dark art, so here is a list of frequently asked questions with some helpful answers.

What is a managed phishing simulation service?

A managed phishing simulation helps organisations simulate phishing attacks against their employees to test their awareness and susceptibility to phishing emails. It's a proactive approach to preventing cyber attacks and improving cyber security awareness within an organisation.

PhishProof can simulate four attack methods – email (Phishing), phone (Vishing), text (SMiShing), and USB baiting, making it one of the most sophisticated anti-phishing tools in the market.

How does a managed phishing simulation service work?

The managed phishing simulation service involves creating realistic phishing emails and sending them to employees within an organisation. We then monitor the responses and provide feedback to you on your employees' awareness and susceptibility to phishing attacks. 

We would deliver this by initially setting up a meeting with you to discuss the number of people you would like to test with our phishing campaigns and how frequently these will be carried out. What this process looks like:
•    We will provide you with a spreadsheet to populate (see below) with the information of the employees you would like to be tested. We will use this completed spreadsheet to set up your phishing campaign. 
•    In order to make sure your employees receive the email, we will run you through a process to enable whitelisting. 
•    There are many different options of templates for each campaign which can be chosen to best fit you and your company, as shown below. These options include the difficulty and type of email template sent, whether the emails are all sent at once or randomised over a selected time period, the duration of the campaign, the business hours within which the emails will be sent, and the display domain.

The service also comes with an extension collection of training and education resources to help your employees improve their cyber security knowledge and skills.

Why should we consider a managed phishing simulation service? Traditional online and in-person training is not enough to prepare your employees for the nonstop barrage of phishing emails they receive. To help prevent them from falling victim to these attacks, organisations must use more than just traditional online and in-person training tools.
What are the benefits of a managed phishing simulation service?

There are several benefits of a managed phishing simulation service including improved cyber security awareness, reduced risk of successful phishing attacks, and better protection of sensitive data and information. By simulating phishing attacks, organisations can identify vulnerabilities in their security systems and take steps to mitigate them before a real attack occurs.

Other key benefits include:

  • Protect your brand reputation: a successful phishing attack can not only result in financial loss, but also significant damage to your brand reputation. Our managed phishing simulation service can help prevent these attacks from happening in the first place, thereby safeguarding your brand reputation.
  • Keep up with evolving threats - cyber criminals are constantly evolving their tactics to stay ahead of the game. Oyr managed phishing simulation service can help your organisation stay up-to-date with the latest threats and trends in the cyber security landscape, ensuring that you are always one step ahead of potential attackers.

Will a managed phishing simulation service harm my employees' productivity? No, a managed phishing simulation service should not harm your employees' productivity. The service is conducted in a non-evasive way that minimises disruption to your organisation's operations. In addition, the service can be a valuable training opportunity for employees to learn how to identify and respond to phishing attacks, which can ultimately improve their productivity by reducing the risk of successful attacks.
How does a phishing simulation product work?

PhishProof allows administrators to launch campaigns of realistic emails to employees’ inboxes. 

These simulated and safe emails test your employees’ ability to recognise clues commonly found in real phishing emails. Those who “click the link” are given immediate just-in-time training to educate them on the dangers of phishing emails and the catastrophic effect they can have on the organisation. 

Additionally, more than 100 new PhishProof templates of different difficulties and types have been added since 2021, including those that spoof the world’s most phished brands and exploit current events such as COVID-19 and working from home.

How often should a phishing simulation be used?

The frequency of using a phishing simulation product can vary depending on your organisation's needs and risk profile. However, it's generally recommended to conduct phishing simulations on a regular basis, such as quarterly. This ensures that employees are regularly reminded of the importance of cyber security awareness and that any vulnerabilities in the organisation's security systems can be identified and addressed in a timely manner.

How does the free trial work?

As part of the free trial, we first understand your objectives to tailor the simulation for your specific needs. You will then recieve: 

  • Personalised and managed phishing simulation exercise across your organisation.
  • Overview of the platform and inclusive cyber security training modules.
  • Detailed report highlighting results and indication of susceptibility to the real phishing risk.
