ThreatCop Vishing Awareness Training and Simulation

There is a global rise in vishing attacks over the past few years. Vishing or phone call scam is a type of social engineering attack that is similar to email phishing. The motive of the attack is to steal personal information and financial details. Often threat actors lure victims into clicking or downloading malicious links or attachments they send over either email or text message during the phone call.

Clicking such malicious links or downloading attachments lead to severe consequences, such as ransomware attacks, identity theft, data theft, etc. This is why every employee in an organization should be aware of vishing attacks and must know how to avoid them.
