Simulated Phishing Campaigns

D2 provides opportunities for putting employee security to the test by simulating realistic phishing cyberattacks. By launching campaigns throughout the year, users begin to change behavior as they practice spotting suspicious emails and acting on them appropriately.

Are Your Employees Cyber Vigilant?

Often, cyber threats surface in organizations via a simple click on an email link. To combat this issue, D2 sends realistic, but harmless, phishing emails to the client base. Each user is assigned a unique link embedded within the email to track their interaction with the phony request. Depending on the scenario type, the link will either bring users to a remediation page or, in some cases, first to a landing page where they are asked to input more data.

Current scenario types include:

Link-based Scenarios

  • Amazon
  • PayPal
  • UPS

  • Payroll Fraud Protection
  • VPN
  • Virus Scan

Successful attacks are quantified in comprehensive reports, which are provided to the point of contact at the conclusion of the campaign period. It is common to see 20% of an organization’s employees fall for a simulated phishing attack prior to receiving any formal cybersecurity education or training. As users become more familiar with clues that point to suspicious emails, this number begins to drop significantly, and users become more careful with their email routines. Phishing campaigns can be scheduled to occur quarterly, bimonthly, or monthly.
