Espion to showcase Wombat at Infosecurity Europe 2013

Social engineering and anti-phishing technology experts Wombat Security Technologies (Wombat) makes its European debut at Infosecurity Europe 23-25 April, Earls Court, London.

Leading information security firm Espion, is taking the task of making the workforce an integral part of its information security awareness programme to a new level with its latest game-changing technology partner, Wombat.

Phishing and spear-phishing (highly targeted phishing) are common weapons of choice for cybercriminals looking to extract data and intellectual property from organisations.  Among the products Espion will demo at Infosecurity Europe is PhishGuru®, Wombat’s award winning email phishing simulation service, which enables IT managers to craft their own phishing attacks, identify employees who are most susceptible and then teach them to recognise and resist targeted social engineering.

Since 2008 Wombat has had a successful track-record in the US market where organisations that have employed its continuous training program have experienced greater than 80% reduction in employee susceptibility to attack when utilising their Anti-Phishing training suite which includes PhishGuru, Email Security and URL game-based and interactive software training modules.  Espion now brings this hugely successful solution to the European market and wants businesses interested in augmenting their email security training for employees to consider Wombat.

Espion training manager, Mark Wiley, says:  “Organisations looking to secure their critical data need to include users in the solution.  Espion recognises the value of Wombat’s innovative methodology that is revolutionising the way IT managers deliver IT security training.

When an employee falls for the simulated attack, it creates a unique “teachable moment” when they are most open to learning and can be immediately presented with a training message that explains what happened and how to avoid similar attacks in the future.”

Espion offers holistic solutions based on people, processes and technology, – an approach that has made the firm perfectly positioned to meet the more complex information security needs of organisations.  Espion has empowered more than 1000 security professionals to play an active role in their organisation’s security through its training division which offers globally recognised training certifications including CISSP, CISA, C|EH and C|HFI.
