Phish Testing and Simulation
Phishing attacks are on the rise and more sophisticated than ever. Recent data shows that 1 in 10 people fall for phishing attacks and social engineering. More than 1 million new phishing sites are created each month, and an increasing number of spear-phishing campaigns are targeting employees.
Security experts agree that phish testing and phishing simulation are effective ways to combat this most common and costly type of internet fraud. The GLS SecurePhish™ testing and simulation tool raises employee awareness and empowers them to differentiate between a legitimate email and a targeted phishing email from a malicious attacker.

Benefits of Phish Testing and Scenario-Based Instruction
Increased Security – Phishing simulations provide quantifiable results that can be measured, enabling improvement to be identified and tracked.
Demonstrated Responsibility – As a responsible organization, you need to demonstrate to your stakeholders that you understand the current threat environment and are taking steps to reduce risks. By ignoring the threats from social engineering attacks, you could be exposd to litigation.
Improved Training Retention – Training is incredibly valuable, but until an employee experiences it, their actions are unknown. After seeing what types of phishing attempts are possible, employees understand and are more security conscious.
Net Reduced Training Cost – By pinpointing employees that are more susceptible, such as repeat failures, you can provide additional training to those employees without the cost and burden to other employees.
