To reach a sufficient confidence level, a security audit is all the more efficient when an intrusion test is carried out simultaneously. Clear objectives: define a security level and qualify its resistance while making the actors in the company sensitive to the problem. An intrusion test allows measuring the protection level, as do qualification methods in the industrial world (resistance of an engine for example). The test duration as well as its area are important factors to be taken into account.
A phishing test helps employees understand the different forms a phishing attack can take and avoid clicking on malicious links or disclosing sensitive data in malicious forms. Real-time phishing simulations have been shown to double employee awareness compared to more traditional cybersecurity training tactics.
