This service provides the capability for an agency security team to conduct simulated phishing attacks against their employees, or have them conducted by Cyber Command. This involves sending emails that mimic real phishing attempts as seen by outside threats. Employees who click on any links or open any attachments are notified that they failed to recognize the simulated phishing attempt and are directed to additional Security Awareness Training. Run reports and track trends for enhanced visibility into the potential risks that phishing may pose across your agency.
What problems it solves
More than 90% of successful hacks and data breaches start with phishing scams. Phishing is a threat to every organization across the globe, including the State of Arizona.
