What is PhishingBox? 

Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive informative such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. PhishingBox is a web-based, phishing simulation platform for social engineering testing.  With PhishingBox, companies and organizations can conduct phishing simulations as an effective way to test employees’ security awareness and susceptibility to social engineering tactics. 
 
Founded in 2005 in Lexington, Kentucky by Brad Fenster, a former FDIC auditor, PhishingBox started its life as a tool used for conducting social engineering testing at the audit and consulting firm, Styzer Risk Management (Styzer).  In 2011, Styzer’s name was changed to PhishingBox.  As PhishingBox continued to grow, it became a proven cybersecurity solution and a trusted partner for many IT professionals.  In 2016, that growth led PhishingBox to merge with its longtime partner eLink Design, to create the company we have today. 
 
Virtually overnight, the PhishingBox team swelled to over 35 people and is well positioned to continue its phenomenal growth moving forward.  PhishingBox proudly serves clients internationally:
