Phishing and Awareness

2017 has seen an increase in the uptake of our tailored phishing services, as organisations look to gain a deeper understanding of the threat posed.

Currently the average exposure (the percentage of employees clicking phishing emails) is 42% with outliers at 83% and in many of our engagements we are able to entice end users to provide domain credentials.


This clearly shows a need for training and awareness along with regular testing to measure the effectiveness of any intervening attempts to improve on how staff deal with phishing attempts.

As part of this holistic approach, 7 Elements are proud to announce that we are partnering with Advanced Engagement to deliver customised security awareness training, alongside real world phishing engagements to measure the effectiveness of such campaigns.

Advanced Engagement is a dedicated security awareness training company trusted by financial services organisations and professional bodies with the aim of positively influencing the security culture in your organisation.

If you would like to explore your organisations exposure to phishing, then please get in touch with our team to discuss how we can help.
