Phishing Assessments

Social Engineering

The risk of falling victim to cyber threats, particularly phishing attacks, has become more pronounced. Recognizing the paramount importance of safeguarding sensitive information and fortifying organizational defenses, obtaining a phishing assessment emerges as a crucial proactive measure. This assessment serves as a simulated exercise designed to replicate real-world phishing scenarios, enabling individuals and organizations to gauge their susceptibility to deceptive tactics employed by cybercriminals.

Benefits & Application

Why Phishing Assessments?

Phishing has unequivocally solidified its position as a predominant and highly effective attack vector in the realm of cybersecurity. This insidious tactic, characterized by deceptive attempts to lure individuals into divulging sensitive information or performing malicious actions, has evolved into a sophisticated and pervasive threat.


Cybercriminals adeptly exploit the human factor, employing tactics that range from meticulously crafted emails impersonating trusted entities to social engineering strategies that prey on unsuspecting targets. The widespread success of phishing attacks underscores the urgency for individuals and organizations to fortify their defenses against this ever-present danger.

Real World Evaluations

Engagements that Count

The problem with most turn-key phishing assessments is that they are just not effective in training users how to identify and respond to a real targeted attack.  They are predominantly engineered using widely known tactics observed in large scale generic campaigns with little to no regard to tuning the pretext to the intended victim(s).

In terms of actually improving an organization’s security posture, the unfortunate fact is many phishing engagements offer little more than a check mark in a compliance or security awareness check box. Organizations engaged in providing their customers with both security awareness training and phishing assessments are obviously subject to a conflict of interest.

Our phishing engagements are different.  They are carefully crafted to challenge the end user and equip them with the necessary skills to both identify and respond effectively to a targeted attack.  Our mission is to provide a meaningful enhancement to your organization’s security posture and not simply check boxes.

Building Trust & Authenticity

Realistic & Effective Pretexting

Pretexting is a deceptive social engineering technique employed by cybercriminals to manipulate individuals into divulging confidential information or performing actions that compromise security.  Pretexting involves the creation of a fabricated scenario or pretext to establish a false sense of trust and legitimacy.


The believability of the pretext is a predominant factor in determining how effective the phishing email will be.
