Best Practices for Effective Phishing Simulations eCourse

Key strategies to maximize success, preventing real world attacks
How many times have you heard of breaches caused by phishing? Though phishing has been around for decades, these fake emails have become more convincing, and are still making their way into inboxes on a regular basis. A careless user can end up costing an organization thousands of dollars simply by clicking a link or signing into a website they thought was trustworthy.

Penetration testers who run phishing campaigns are tasked with averting such disasters. When properly executed, these social engineering tests can give an organization data on how vulnerable they are to such attacks and serve as educational opportunities to teach employees about ways to recognize and avoid getting phished.

But how do you ensure you're deploying a successful social engineering campaign? This course is designed to teach you about different types of phish, how to think like an attacker, create phish with different audiences in mind, and deploy a campaign that will better prepare an organization against attacks.
