Phishing Simulator and Anti-Phishing Services
Spear phishing is a common everyday occurrence, and a good phishing awareness program enables employees to become the final “filter” for preventing these scams.
- 156 million phishing emails are sent
- 16 million get through security filters and into inboxes
- 8 million are opened and 800,000 are clicked
- 80,000 recipients fall for a phishing scam
Testing your employees with simulated phishing attacks is an important part of your overall security awareness program. We make it easy to measure and demonstrate your employees’ aptitude and progress on highly visual dashboards and reports.
Your employees are on the front line in the anti-phishing battle, and you can’t win without them. That’s why we recommend a combination of simulated phishing attacks and targeted training to create a workforce that is immune to the lures of hackers.
MediaPro’s Adaptive Phishing Simulator
Our Adaptive Phishing Simulator delivers a complete solution to assess, train, and test employee vigilance across your enterprise. It is rich in features and offers your administrators plenty of phishing options.
We know you want to understand what’s happening with your phishing program right away. The first thing you’ll see when you open our phishing tool is a comprehensive dashboard. It displays detailed data about your most recent phishing campaigns and the activities of your employees. You’ll also see live data that shows you exactly how susceptible your organization is to a phishing attack, what kind of attack is working best, and whether or not you’re improving over time.
You can target any employee, or group of employees, with a simulated spear phishing attack just by adding their email addresses. Once you’ve added a target’s email address, you can organize and group such addresses however you like: by department, job title, or even at random. You’re in complete control of whom you phish. Because we offer a phishing solution that is integrated with our courseware, targeted employees can be automatically enrolled in a phishing campaign when they are assigned a specific course in the LMS (such as a phishing awareness course).
Our tool includes a large library that includes hundreds of phishing emails and educational landing page templates. This allows you to get started phishing right away. But if you prefer, you can create your own templates using the built-in template design tool. If you’re HTML savvy, you can write your own code to build highly customized content or email template styles. You can pick or design the exact landing page an employee will see if they take the bait. These landing pages can be directly linked to training and reinforcement activities within an LMS. This way, your training data resides all in one place for easy reporting.
Our phishing tool makes it easy to set up campaigns. Once targets (your employees) are loaded, and phishing templates are selected, you bring it all together in a phishing campaign. Creating a new phishing campaign is fast and easy. You just give the campaign a name and description, schedule start and stop dates, select your email message and landing page templates, and then choose your target group(s). Once it’s in place, campaign execution is automatic and you can instantly see the results on the phishing dashboard. You can pause, start, and stop campaigns at any time.
Phishing Activity Reports
You can measure and report on your anti-phishing activities with our online reporting engine. You can look at all of your campaigns with a high-level overview report, take a deep-dive into select campaigns, or run core reports on a regular basis. See campaign statistics, individual performance tables, and single-person results histories. View recent simulation phishing attack campaign histories and learn which emails and landing pages fooled the most employees. You can always download data via a CSV file for your own custom reports and analysis.
An Integrated Phishing Awareness Solution
MediaPro’s Phishing Simulator Tool integrates with our security awareness training and reinforcement offerings to provide a rigorous and highly adaptable tool for phish-proofing your workforce.Through our proprietary, SaaS-based Adaptive Awareness Portal, users can see the results of phishing campaigns in the same graphical interface as other aspects of their awareness initiative.
Great Training is Built Right In
While many phishing solutions fall flat when it comes to training, MediaPro’s Adaptive Phishing Simulator includes direct access to the best training on the market, drawn directly from MediaPro’s Adaptive Data Protection Library. MediaPro’s training is known for its instructional excellence, and has been deployed to the world’s most security-conscious corporations.
Anti-Phishing Implementation Options
The Adaptive Phishing Simulator can be delivered as a managed service or as a self-managed service. We can tailor the Adaptive Phishing Simulator to suit the needs of any organization.
Managed Phishing Services
With the Managed Service phishing option, MediaPro provides expert guidance and operates your anti-phishing program on your behalf. Experienced consultants assess your employees’ behavior to identify the most effective training messages and reinforcement activities. We then gather data and measure the results of your phishing awareness activities and ensure these activities deliver the behavioral change you are seeking from an anti-phishing program.
A Managed Service offering is perfect for companies that prefer to outsource training or awareness activities to experienced specialists and minimize employee involvement. The program includes:
- Program planning and design;
- Expert consulting and guidance;
- Phishing campaign assessment, execution, measurement, and reporting; and
- Program operated by an experienced MediaPro team.
Self-Managed Phishing Services
The self-managed service offering works well for businesses that prefer in-house or hands-on analytics and training. MediaPro consultants will provide planning and guidance to help you launch your first phishing campaign. After the first successful campaign is complete, you take the responsibility of being the primary driver for all future phishing campaigns. This program includes:
- Initial program planning and guidance;
- Program introduction and operator training;
- Self-run phishing campaign execution, measurement, and reporting; and
- Additional service hours provided on an “as needed” basis.
Part of the Adaptive Awareness Framework™
MediaPro’s Adaptive Phishing Simulator is capable of operating as a stand-alone component of any security awareness program. But it can become even more powerful when deployed as an integral component of the Adaptive Awareness Framework. The Adaptive Awareness Framework brings together planning, training, reinforcement, and analysis (including simulated phishing and knowledge assessment surveys) in a seamless structure and format that is designed to build a security-aware culture within your organization.
The Adaptive Awareness Framework provides a structure that enables you to deliver a comprehensive data protection program that goes beyond mere phishing to address all of your critical data security issues.
