LIMASSOL, Cyprus - Oct. 20, 2017 - SOFTimpact the Maritime IT solutions specialist recently launched the worlds first and only dedicated Maritime Phishing Simulator.
As part of this launch they are currently offering a FREE trial of the platform to all Maritime companies wanting to analzye their exposure to such attacks.
Lee Williamson, Senior Consultant Maritime Cyber Security stated " Many attacks we see start first with phishing emails, that is an attack where hackers attempt to trick users into clicking risky links or inputing their credentials. They do this by appearing to be from a legitimate or trusted source. SOFTimpact's CYBERimpact team have developed a fully managed Phishing platform that allows companies to test behaviour of staff or the so called "Human Element" which is often used to bypass security technology.
We have already ran simulations across many companies with the results often being an echo of one another. In many cases the email passed through the security gateways and onto the users device. At that point the last line of defence is the user and whether they open, click or indeed enter credentials to a fake page maintained by us. The results average out at 95% delivered, 70% opened and 45% clicking or providing credentials, which is a worrying statistic that users are not trained on how to identify such mail attacks.
Once a company understands that exposure they can look to Cyber awareness campaigns whether this be via training or ongoing internal newsletters"
