Phishing Email Security Assessment
Broad-scale and targeted email phishing attacks are among the most likely type of cyber attack that businesses are having to contend with today. Such emails can be sent with little risk, and if successful, could trick users into revealing sensitive information such as login credentials, or potentially even result in the installation of malware. Such emails could be sent in mass to all employees when just one successful exploit is needed to compromise the business’ sensitive data. Alternatively, specific individuals within the business may be targeted with highly bespoke emails, aiming to leverage that particular employee’s privileges.
Pentest People’s Phishing Testing Service simulates both a broad-scale generic email phishing attack or a realistic targeted attack on key employees. The result of this test generates valuable statistics for measuring the effectiveness of business awareness training and procedures.

Phishing Service Breakdown Transcript
Pentest People’s team of dedicated social engineers will help to perform phishing engagements against your business. These generally take the form of a mocked up phishing portal, which is designed to mimic either an office 365 portal or a custom portal of your choosing. That is then sent out to all the targets that you provide us. You receive some interesting statistics on who’s opened the email, who’s clicked on the link. We’ve visited the page and of course, who’s actually entered details into that portal. Off the back of this pentest people can provide detailed training on how to prevent these sorts of attacks working against your business.
