Testing the company's staff on their ability to spot phishing attacks should be a routine process that all businesses should adhere-to. The importance of knowing which members of the team require some level of training is crucial.
Using technology that mimics generic and tailored phishing emails, the target company is sent harmless emails with tracking technology that reports back who opened the emails and clicked on the links within them. The simulated phishing emails can mimic anything from Amazon order confirmations to IRS warnings. They can also be spear-phishing emails tailored to attack a specific entity, company, department, or persons.
We can't speak for all MSP's, but with iTecs, we start the process by interviewing the manager who will be our main point of contact and decide on the level of aggression, the types of simulated attacks, the attack schedule, and if and how we enforce training. iTecs handles the design, launch, tracking, reporting, and training; we handle everything.
The mock phishing campaign design can be intricate, but iTecs has much experience working with various companies and can make suggestions as consultants. This is what differentiates us from other competitors. We provide our clients with the white-glove managed experience and work closely with them to ensure we meet their goals.
We've started our campaigns with an online seminar, hosted for your staff, that provides a short but very informative session to teach how to spot phishing attacks followed by a quick Q&A session. The seminar is recorded and delivered to the customer to use with future onboards of new employees. This is an optional way to begin, the seminar could always be something we perform once the first waves of attacks has been launched.

On average, it takes 100 days for ransomware or malware to be detected with traditional network security systems due to their inadequate visibility and limited ability to analyze advanced threats. A lot of damage can occur over 100 days. Due to the advanced programming of EDR, the 100-day average of detecting ransomware or malware drastically drops to just a matter of hours or even minutes.
