Email Spear Phishing is a scam via digital communicationthat targets specific individuals or companies. Although the main purpose is to steal data for criminal purposes, the basic intention is often to install malware.
An e-mail is sent, usually from a trusted source. This redirects the user to a fake website in order to request sensitive data without permission or to entice the user to execute malicious code. This method is particularly effective because attackers can often use public information to create compelling emails while posing as trusted individuals - perhaps even people within the target organization. Most often, the email is highly customized and refined with social engineering techniques to tailor the message and website to the specific victim.
If you want to protect yourself effectively, you should know how hackers work and sensitize your employees to e-mail spear phishing. In this Security Assessment, our security engineers will demonstrate how easy it is to gain access to third party data. Thus, employees are also introduced to IT security, for whom digital attacks were previously only an abstract threat.
We offer a high degree of individualization in the selection of attack methods. For example, only the critical areas of your company can be sensitized. If you have special requirements, we will be happy to make you an individual offer.
