Phishing Assessment

Employees continue to pose the biggest threat to business data safety. Phishing, a form of social engineering, is the act of sending targeted, malicious advertisements and emails that are designed to steal credentials or data. Cybercriminals impersonate legitimate individuals or organizations to establish credibility and then trick targets into giving up financial information, PINs or passwords. Phishing campaigns are still very widespread despite data protection security controls. Phishing attacks may be gateways for cybercriminals to hijack your access to a larger organization’s data. DIGIGUARD phishing assessments can provide an accurate snapshot of employee cybersecurity behavior and the effectiveness of your data protection controls. Our team will:

Email filtering

Most data breaches begin with a single phishing email. Targeted phishing and business email compromise (BEC) attacks are increasing. Businesses must do everything they can to filter out malicious emails and prevent data loss or compromised financial and banking access credentials. IT security technology is a necessary and critical step to prevent cyberattacks – but no technology can protect against every cyber threat. Training employees and creating a strong policy and culture of cybersecurity are equally important for your small business. DIGIGUARD consultants will help you demonstrate due diligence in identifying and preventing the following threats:

Employee Phishing Testing

Gaining insight into employee behavior before an attack occurs is crucial. Protecting your business from the potentially devastating loss of data and damage to your company’s reputation is the goal of phishing assessment testing. The technology that helps your business thrive can present the greatest threat if it is not carefully managed with cybersecurity testing and awareness training. DIGIGUARD will help your business from becoming low-hanging fruit for cybercriminals. We can send customized email phishing simulation tests to all employees, or just select departments and employees. Assessment results can be shared with employees or kept confidential. Our team can suggest ways to reward employee compliance.

Baseline Reporting

Benchmarking employee behavior during a phishing assessment will establish a baseline for measuring remediation efforts. A cybersecurity gap analysis will highlight missing controls and areas of vulnerability in your organization’s training policies and procedures. You will have detailed information to alert employees of their actions and the potential impact of negligence. DIGIGUARD phishing assessment reports will include:
