Phishing, spoofing and business email compromise (BEC), besides other social engineering attacks, are becoming increasingly common and more sophisticated. Because such malicious activities can be cleverly tailored based on human interactions, it becomes increasingly harder - even for Saudi organizations having IT network defenses in place to detect and defend against them.
By taking advantage of human error, rather than software or operating system vulnerabilities, attackers know they have better chances to trick users into believing them as a trusted source in an electronic communication, which results in compromising confidential information, providing access to organizational finances or facilitating technical attacks on a company's network. After all, most cyber-attacks are caused as the result of a successful phishing email.
Phishing emails with convincing social engineering schemes can lead not only to leaks of sensitive information, but also potentially enormous financial losses. Phishing emails have continued to be a serious threat to Saudi businesses of all industries; they're responsible for 94% of ransomware and $132,000 per Business Email Compromise incident.
So, what can you do to help prevent falling a victim when your technology can't keep pace with attackers? Empower and condition your employees to detect phishing attempts through exposure to real threat simulations with Cofense PhishMe.
Prevention is better than cure; therefore, training your staff how to spot and avoid a camouflaged phishing or social engineering attack is vital to your cyber health. When you promote awareness of the scam techniques used by attackers, your employees will be less likely to fall for them. After all, your employees - as a second line of defense after technical measures - have a role to play in keeping the organization secure by not falling for, or being tricked by, spear phishing.
As a strategic partner with Cofense, the market leader in online security, Ctelecoms can expertly utilize PhishMe to help Saudi companies of all sizes and industries to dramatically reduce the risks of phishing and related attacks caused by human error - while also giving users the skills and awareness to spot and report threats.
Built on the world's largest data lake of phishing threats found by real people, Cofense PhishMe combines the power of human detection with an automated response, enabling your teams to stop phishing attacks in minutes.
It all begins by customizing a series of automated, real-life phishing simulations to help your employees safely experience what an attack might look and feel like - along with related security training so they understand wider threats, know how to report and enforce best practice and, ultimately, reduce the risk of a successful attack or breach.
PhishMe tracks the campaign and reports who opened the message and who clicked on the message links. You can then educate your users by directing them to the free educational content provided by Ctelecoms & Cofense. It's advanced phishing prevention technology augmented with collective human intelligence - the first solution purpose - built to quickly detect and stop phish that evades secure email gateways and reaches the inbox.
Cofense PhishMe is designed to change risky behavior and enable employees to recognize and report phishing emails. The Cofense methodology deliver hands-on experience with safe examples and on-the-spot education opportunities. The Cofense research teams use real phishing emails to create timely examples and content focused on today's greatest threats such as:
Cofense PhishMe simulates those active phishing threats to condition smarter user behavior. It's the opposite of phish testing, which assesses vulnerability but fails to change behavior through continual learning. Unlike machines, humans can't be patched. People remain aware of threats through phishing awareness training, practicing regularly, and remaining invested in organizational defense.
Because threat actors constantly innovate, Cofense offers simulations based on their latest tactics. Our Active Threat scenarios create the most relevant learning moments. Plus, our new SEG Misses filter lets you deploy phishing scenarios that have bypassed perimeter solutions, similar to those deployed at your organization.
With Cofense PhishMe Responsive Delivery, you can maximize user engagement by sending phishing awareness emails to employees when they are active in email. Responsive Delivery also eliminates whitelisting and helps reach users across multiple shifts and time zones.
