Cyber Awareness Training: Our Partnership with Phished - Technicalities

Cyber Awareness Training: Our Partnership with Phished

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity threats are an ever-present concern for individuals and organizations alike. Among these threats, phishing remains one of the most prevalent and damaging. As cybercriminals continually refine their techniques, it is imperative that we stay ahead of the curve to protect our sensitive information and maintain our trust with clients and stakeholders. To bolster our defences and enhance our security measures, we are excited to announce our new partnership with Phished, a leader in the field of phishing prevention, awareness and training.

Understanding Phishing: A Persistent Threat

Phishing involves fraudulent attempts to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in electronic communications. These attacks can take various forms, including emails, social media messages, and malicious websites. Despite growing awareness, phishing remains a significant threat due to its evolving nature and the increasing sophistication of attackers.

Phishing attacks can have severe consequences, including financial loss, data breaches, and reputational damage. For businesses, the impact can be particularly devastating, leading to loss of customer trust and regulatory penalties. Therefore, it is crucial to implement robust security measures and educate users about the dangers of phishing.

Partnering with Phished: A Strategic Move

Recognising the need for advanced phishing protection, we have partnered with Phished, a company renowned for its expertise in phishing simulations and cybersecurity training. Phished offers a comprehensive suite of services designed to mitigate the risks associated with phishing attacks. Their approach combines cutting-edge technology with user education to create a resilient defence against cyber threats.

4. Automated Threat Response: Phished’s advanced algorithms can detect and respond to phishing threats in real-time, minimising the potential impact of an attack. This proactive approach ensures that threats are neutralised before they can cause significant harm.
