What is smishing simulation testing

Smishing simulation testing assesses how employees respond to smishing attempts by exposing them to a simulated text message-based attack.

Smishing is a cyber-attack using fraudulent text messages (SMS) to deceive individuals into revealing sensitive information or downloading malicious content.

Cyber-criminals impersonate trusted entities to manipulate victims. Smishing attacks can lead to financial loss, data breaches and identity theft.

Our method

Our smishing simulation testing service follows a structured approach to assess your organisation’s susceptibility to smishing attacks.

We work with you establish the test objectives and campaign goals, defining the target information we need to acquire during the test.

After identifying potential individuals or organisations who possess the desired information and use mobile devices, we craft persuasive messages, developing well-written, concise and convincing text messages that grab the attention of the recipient and urge them to take immediate action.

In the simulation test, conducted in accordance with strict ethical and legal guidelines, our testers will spoof sender information, making them appear as if they come from a trusted source, such as a financial institution or a reputable service provider. We create a sense of urgency in our messages, emphasising a time-sensitive matter that requires an immediate response, increasing the likelihood of the target engaging with the message.

We analyse the findings, evaluating the success of the campaign through metrics to assessing the organisation’s ability to defend against a smishing attack. This is documented in a comprehensive report, outlining findings, vulnerabilities, trends and recommendations tailored to you.

Finally, we can deliver post-campaign security awareness training to educate employees about smishing risks and promote best practices for protecting sensitive information.
