Prefer a personalized training?

It is possible for organizations to make the training even more recognizable. This can be done by having the ethical hackers of Skopos conduct preliminary research into the greatest risks for the organization.

In this, a digital search is done among three volunteers for data that is available from them on the internet – this is first shared personally for approval.

In addition, a phishing test is set up and, if necessary, a CEO fraud test is performed. This allows the training material to be enriched with immediately recognizable examples
