Attackers will always look for the easiest way into your system, and this way is often through your employees. By sending malicious emails, SMS or other messages, criminal actors can achieve a way into your systems. It is therefore essential for a company to have good routines and training in how to handle this type of social manipulation.


How secure are you?

To measure the level of information security in a company, a real phishing attack can be simulated, where personalized emails are sent to targets in your company, and the number of clicks and logins are stored and analyzed. In this way, you can find out how resistant your company is to different types of targeted attacks. This provides information about which areas you should work on to improve your security culture.

How to avoid being tricked by a hacker

Our ethical hackers have conducted phishing exercises with a number of companies. Here are some of their tips on what you should pay attention to in order not to get scammed:

  • Look at the language in the email - are there lots of weird typos or unprofessional language?
  • Look at the content - is it an email from a colleague, but the content seems a bit odd? Don't reply back to the email, instead call your colleague on the phone to double-check
  • Consider the context - does it seem strange, ask IT or a colleague for a second opinion
  • An attacker often uses threats, urgency and the like to make you stressed - breathe with your stomach and read the email again
  • If you are sitting on a desktop PC, hover over the link and you will see the actual URL the link leads to
  • Look at the email address - does it look right?
  • Take a look at the signature - is it real?
