Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails that appear to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
Phishing emails are designed to convince you that you are performing a normal task or procedure.
Those affected by phishing range from large corporations to small companies; from tech and finance companies to hospitals, schools, and local governments.
Phishing campaigns can be active as often as is preferred. During an active campaign, an email is sent to an end user in an attempt to induce the user to take action on the email.
The phishing campaigns evolve over time, and can range in subject matter.
Phishing campaigns can be set up to occur as often as is preferred. They can occur at random, and can be set up to send to all users, to a specific group, or to an individual.
Training campaigns consist of training modules, video modules, and even games. They range in length from 3 minutes – 45 minutes.
