Overview

97% of successful hacks involve social engineering, and over 90% are initiated by email. The ongoing training of staff to be security-aware is one of the most important investments a company can make to protect itself from data breaches.

LUCY uniquely allows companies to take on the role of an “attacker” through customizable phishing simulations so that they can discover and eliminate weaknesses in both their staff as well as their technical infrastructure. LUCY’s extensive cybersecurity training program includes more than 250 multilingual training modules, including phishing and malware simulations, awareness trainings and technical vulnerability tests.

LUCY’s real-world, simulated phishing attacks are constantly updated to expose people to the changing techniques used by hackers. They range from simple hyperlink emails to sophisticated ransomware attacks, portable media attacks, SMS attacks, BEC/CEO attacks; credential-harvesting attacks, USB attacks, malware and spyware simulations and more.

LUCY also has hundreds of multi-lingual training, film and html animated videos, quizzes, posters, games and tests, with advanced reporting to track and provide detailed analysis on every end-user’s performance over time. With an email reporting button that integrates into Outlook, Exchange, Office 365 and G-Suite email, LUCY quarantines and analyzes suspected phishing emails when they are reported.

In addition, LUCY’s unique Technical Malware and Mail/Web Tests provide an exceptional map of your technical infrastructure vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. When a staff member falls for a simulated attack, we should ask “what would happen if that was a real attack?” IT security teams can use LUCY’s Low Hanging Fruit Collector to run hundreds of system tests and discover the answer.

According to a large international customer, the effectiveness of LUCY’s campaign toolbox, particularly the phishing button and phishing e-learning, led to a drastic decrease in their “victim rate” from 30% in 2017 to less than 9% in 2019.
