Phishing is one of the most common ways by which criminals gain access to companies’ passwords and other security credentials
. The criminal sends a fake email to trick employees into opening a malware-containing attachment or click on a link to a malicious website that solicits passwords. If the attack is successful, criminals could impersonate staff, gain access to confidential information or disrupt systems. Therefore, it is understandable that companies want to block phishing attacks. This is why it is so critically important to conduct a phishing test for employees and this is where PhishingBox comes in.

PhishingBox gives you the flexibility to evolve your program over time, identify areas of susceptibility and deliver targeted training when and where it’s needed most.
Phishing is typically carried out by email spoofing and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one
. Phishing tests for employees
evaluate the protection provided against phishing websites. Communications purporting to be from popular social websites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public.
PhishingBox is designed to assess a person’s risk exposure to phishing attacks and test employees’ abilities to spot and report suspicious emails. Phishing testing for employees will present plausible scenarios to persuade users to click a malicious link or download malicious email attachments. This is all done by mimicking ubiquitous websites, brands and scenarios or by acting as company authorities such as IT staff or executives. It’s one thing to conduct phishing tests for your employees, but is another thing to know that the testing has successfully changed employee behavior.
Running an effective phishing test at work can be the difference between an employee who clicks on malicious links or attachments and one who reports them.
