A new phishing simulation tool that helps you train your staff and improve cybersecurity is now available as an add-on to our LMS platform.
Of the businesses that reported suffering cyberattacks over the last 12 months in the UK government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021, 83% fell victim to phishing.
Phishing, where people are tricked into following links in fraudulent emails (or other communications) and downloading malware or being directed to unsafe websites, was the single most disruptive type of cyberattack, according to 62% of businesses.
Those businesses exposed to phishing attacks and consequently suffering data breaches, risk losing their reputation, customers’ and investor confidence, as well as significant regulatory fines.
Protecting your business from phishing attacks
To help organisations protect themselves from this threat, we’ve released a new phishing simulation tool.
Adding to the capabilities of our existing LMS, the new feature is a tool that enables you to send emails replicating the latest phishing scams to your employees – helping you raise awareness and identify training needs within your organisation.
Jack Baker, Marketing and Sales Manager at Walkgrove, says, ‘The way many organisations work these days, especially in the post-pandemic world, can leave them highly vulnerable to cyberattacks such as phishing scams.’
‘Remote working, multiple devices and agile hiring programmes all increase the surface area for attacks, and one of the best ways to protect your business is through effective staff training to increase awareness of hacking techniques and how to respond to them.’

How the phishing simulation tool works
Running your own phishing awareness campaign is incredibly simple with the new add-on feature:
Select your email from a library of templates resembling fake phishing emails from companies such as Facebook, Apple, Microsoft Office and PayPal.
Select your recipients – whether it’s the whole company, a particular department or your new starters. You can send each group up to three simulated phishing emails within a 12-month period.
Employees who open links in the phishing emails are taken to a landing page you can customise where they can learn more about phishing and access relevant training.
Your in-platform dashboard gives you real-time data on how many employees have opened the emails and followed links.
