Phishing – Would any of your staff actually click THAT link

There’s a cyber-crime called phishing.

It’s a major pain.

hoping one of your people will click a link and accidentally give them access to your data.

Do you think your team would spot a phishing email?

Here’s an easy way to check

Would any of your staff actually click that link?


Phishing is one of the biggest threats to your business’s cyber security.

It’s where criminals send an email pretending to be someone else, such as a key supplier or your bank.

They’re trying to get someone to click a bad link. This can install malicious software. Or worse, let them into your network to prepare a ransomware attack, where your data is encrypted until you pay for its return.

3.4 billion phishing emails are sent every day. And 75% of businesses across the globe have experienced a phishing attack.

Could any of your staff be fooled by a phishing email?

You can find out, by doing a phishing simulation.

There are lots of services that let you do this.

You create a realistic-looking email which could be from you, a supplier,

or from another source that your employees trust.

Of course, it’s actually a fake, with small clues that some employees will spot.

You’ll see who marked it as spam… and who was fooled by it and clicked the link.

This isn’t about embarrassing or punishing your team.

It’s about identifying whether you need to give everyone more cyber security training.

The software can only protect you to a certain level.

Your people are your first line of defence against phishing attacks.

And they need regular training to keep them effective.

We can help you assess your defences and train your team to protect your business.

The training’s fun and not expensive.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
