A phishing assessment attempts to gain sensitive information or access from a target user through coercive emails. This method of engagement is particularly effective, as attackers can often leverage public information to craft compelling emails while impersonating someone trustworthy—perhaps even individuals within the target organisation.
Simulated Phishing Assessments
Phishing is the act of sending malicious emails to a target. The attacker may go to great lengths to establish credibility and then prompt the target to provide personal information such as passwords or PIN numbers. Despite being an older technique, phishing attacks continue to be very effective and remain a consistent threat to businesses.
