The current study report on "Economic protection in the digital world" by the German digital association Bitkom clearly shows that qualified employees are the best protection against sabotage, data theft and espionage. Thus, in addition to IT security specialists, employee training on security topics is a suitable measure for 97% of the entrepreneurs to protect company data from unauthorised access and manipulation.
Together with our partner G DATA, we offer customised awareness training as well as phishing tests which show you exactly in which sensitive areas your business data is particularly vulnerable. In this way, training measures can be specifically coordinated and effectively implemented.
Within the scope of the phishing tests, employees receive fake but deceptively real-looking e-mails from a sender of a well-known company such as XING, Amazon, Outlook and similar.
In total, you can choose between 15 different campaigns to suit your individual needs.
The aim of the e-mails is often to build up pressure on the employee and thus entice him to take action, for example by releasing sensitive data such as access data or starting a download. It is precisely such scenarios, which require a quick implementation by the employee and thus put him in a stressful situation, that hackers and cyber criminals trickily exploit to gain access to your business data. Sabotage and blackmail are then the usually very expensive consequences of this scam. For example, the financial damage caused by cybercrime in the German economy in 2019 (loss of production, blackmail, loss of image, etc.) amounted to over 100 billion euros (see Bitkom study). And the number of attacks is rising continuously.
The test results of a planned phishing e-mail campaign show you in detail the success rate of the individual phishing attempts and present in categories which action the employee has carried out (open website, open mail, reveal sensitive data, open attachments etc.). From this, you can then create specific guidelines for dealing with e-mails and also derive training measures that can be individually implemented to protect your data.
