Cyber Guru Phishing
Train with phishing attack simulations
Cyber Guru Phishing is an innovative and engaging anti-phishing platform based on “experiential learning”, focused on what is the main vulnerability point within the public and private organizations today: Phishing.
Thanks to its training programs, Cyber Guru Phishing can increase the resistance of individuals and organizations to Phishing attacks.
Its unique methodology of continuous training and experiential learning maximizes training effectiveness in three specific areas: risk perception, readiness in responding to attacks, and threat awareness.
Modern techniques of Automation and Artificial Intelligence make the platform completely autonomous: the solution creates training programs and implements adaptive simulation campaigns in full independence.
Phishing: a GROWING PHENOMENON
To protect itself from this phenomenon, organizations need to invest in the "human factor", teaching every user to recognize a phishing attack. Considering that the greatest threats to the security of organizations are often lurking in the email accounts of their employees and associates, it is necessary to train every single user to recognize threats contained in the emails they receive daily. This is the only way to increase resilience and reduce the risk level of the entire organization with respect to phishing.
For this reason, the phishing attack simulations carried out by Cyber Guru Phishing, "customized" based on specific characteristics of the organization, prepare employees and associates to react quickly to unexpected attacks ... to be ready for anything.
CYBER GURU PHISHING: THE METHODOLOGY
The real strength of the solution lies in its three methodological pillars, used to make Cyber Guru Phishing a fully result-oriented solution with one precise goal: reducing cyber risk.
Training users to transform their behaviours and increase their resistance to Phishing attacks, while keeping an eye on the constant evolution of attack techniques, requires a continuous training program.
A training program that releases campaigns with a specific frequency criterion, and with targeted care for each user's behavioural profile.
The only way to achieve a behavioural transformation is creating a whole new mindset, fully oriented to recognize threats. But how can we achieve such an ambitious result? Training perception, readiness, and cognition.
Cyber Guru Phishing Training Program is based on experiential learning. The user receives different attacks, with variable frequency but with continuity: these attacks will gradually become more and more complex and challenging.
Users who fall victim to a simulated attack, get exposed to light, on-the-spot training content. It is in this precise moment that users learn a lesson: both cognitively, because they formally understand the error, and emotionally, because they experience the negative feeling of making a mistake that they could avoid.
Cyber Guru Phishing follows an adaptive process to model simulation campaigns and increase training effectiveness, reproducing real cybercriminal attack strategies, and the whole real user experience.
Simulations are automatically customized on user's behavioural profile, following the logic of "personal training", with a methodology that takes into account the ability of every single individual to counter attacks.
Every time users fail the simulation and activate the deceptive action, they are directly exposed to on-the-spot Awareness training content: the content will furnish details on the type of freshly experienced attack, with immediate intervention.
THE ADAPTIVE PROCESS
For each simulation, the solution will record a significant amount of information, enriching the database for its learning algorithms, that will automatically adapt increasingly accurate attack processes to its target.
The adaptive process works at various levels, conditioning the automatic selection of attack templates for each campaign, and their distribution on target.
This selection bases on some variable macros:
- End-user profile: Required to choose the difficulty and frequency of the next attacks for each user, considering their degree of resistance to them.
- Templates Ranking: required to prepare the level of difficulty of attacks, calculated not only on static parameters but also on dynamic parameters, for example, observing the click-rate that one specific template has collected in a specific reality.
OPERATING LOGICAL SCHEME
The simulated attacks campaigns are at the core of Cyber Guru Phishing operating scheme. These campaigns work through an "adaptive process" guided by Artificial Intelligence techniques: different targets are presented with customized attacks that reproduce the real experience, using authentic cybercriminal attack strategies.
Each campaign will be different from the previous one and the next, with absolutely no need for human intervention. The learning algorithms will select attack templates autonomously, basing on a criterion of maximum training effectiveness.
The simulated attacks are organized in campaigns, the result of an adaptive process that selects ideal attack templates automatically, fitting them to the training path level.
For this reason, each campaign will be different from the previous and the next.
The end-users who fall for simulated attacks are automatically presented with an immediate awareness training content, customized to the specificity of the attack template.
The "on-the-spot" training intervention maximizes experiential learning.
The Smart Reports, usable through a complete dashboard, go far beyond the simple detection of the average Click-Rate. Thanks to advanced metrics, these reports evaluate the real risk and target its reduction as the program progresses. The solution highlights various metrics in summary and detail reports.
Cyber Guru Phishing reporting is designed to be a precious tool in reducing risk through training. The smart reports do not only expose the campaigns click-rate, an indicator only photographing an insensitive trend, but propose specific metrics, expressing a clear risk map and the real effectiveness of the path.
The reports are accessible through a dashboard, offering both real-time view and a historical view, with graphic representations that consistently support comparison and analysis activities.
