Overview

PhishSim is a phishing training and simulation tool that provides realistic phishing tests, custom phishing email templates, and automatic education for members of your organization.

Using existing templates, a PhishSim campaign can be created and launched in just a few minutes. While we will be covering topics such as creating custom Data Entry Templates and Email Templates, SecurityIQ provides many pre-configured templates that can be used immediately. We will cover these topics for the benefit of those who wish to create or modify content.

PhishSim Core Components

There are four primary components that come together to form a PhishSim campaign. Before we explore each in-depth, we will briefly explain what each is and how they fit into a campaign.

Education

When a learner demonstrates a risky behavior (i.e. clicking the link in a Phishing email), PhishSim has the ability to turn that risky action into a teachable moment through the presentation of different types of training material. PhishSim education can be delivered using our interactive video tutorials as well as static content web pages that can be used to quickly convey information.

Data Entry Templates

In a data entry attack, a phishing victim enters data into a legitimate looking but ultimately malicious website. The SecurityIQ Data entry Templates are mockups of login forms and websites that can be displayed to a learner and ask them to enter data of some kind.

Email Templates

Emails sent to learners are based off of templates within SecurityIQ. These templates define how the email will look, who the email appears to come from, and details regard the type of attack the email is intended to simulate.

Battery

A battery is simply a collection of multiple email templates that you can send to learners during a PhishSim campaign.

Campaigns

A campaign is a collection of batteries that are assigned to be delivered to one or more groups of learners over a defined amount of time.

Quarantine

When a learner identifies a possible malicious or phishing email in their email client, the SecurityIQ PhishSim plugin for Outlook, Outlook 365, and Gmail allows the user to quickly flag and report the email to system administrators. The quarantine area is where the administrator can review and manage these submissions.


Whitelisting

IMPORTANT – In order to ensure that PhishSim emails are successfully delivered to your servers, you must whitelist the following IP address ranges and domains within your server and any other filtering software.

 

SecurityIQ Email Source IP Addresses and Domains

Whitelist by IP Addresses:

54.240.47.46
54.240.57.47
104.130.122.14
104.130.122.17
198.61.254.34
67.217.44.158

If you whitelist via domain:

smtp-out.us-west-2.amazonses.com
email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com
mail14.static.mailgun.info
mail.phish.io

If you whitelist by email header, whitelist this header:

Header:X-PHISH

Header Text: This is a security awareness phishing simulation test from InfoSec Institute that has been authorized by the recipient organization

 

Domains that PhishSim emails are sent from:
phish.io
authorizednotifications.com
loginprotected.com
strong-encryption.com
encrypt-mail.net
zqa.net

In some instances, the security policies of some organizations may prohibit them from whitelisting the Amazon Web Services address space which is listed above. As an alternative, these users may use SecurityIQ’s Dedicated Email Server feature which forces all outbound email to be sent via a single server. For details on configuring this option, please visiting the Dedicated Email Server section of the Account Settings page of this manual by clicking here.

Whitelisting Instructions for Clients and Servers

 

Whitelisting is a critical step in ensuring the delivery of SecurityIQ email to your users, especially those enrolled in PhishSim campaigns.

If you are using a system which is not listed below, please send an email to support@infosecinstitute.zendesk.com containing the client or email server/gateway name, version, and its primary website. We will work to keep this list updated based on customer feedback.

EMAIL GATEWAYS

Education

When a learner demonstrates a risky behavior (i.e. clicking the link in a Phishing email), PhishSim has the ability to turn that risky action into a teachable moment through the presentation of different types of training material. PhishSim education can be delivered using our interactive video tutorials as well as static content web pages that can be used to quickly convey information.

The education that your learners receive is selected when creating or editing your email template. The Default Education can be changed in your SecurityIQ Account Settings. Your SecurityIQ platform comes built in with numerous Educations. Take note of the interactive modules:

  1. Phishing
  2. Ransomware
  3. Spear Phishing
  4. Suspicious Hosts

To get started navigate to Education under PhishSim in your SecurityIQ platform. From here you can browse Educations provided with your Security platform. You can also create, clone and delete educations. You can search for Educations using the search icon. You can also navigate the list using the arrow icons.

Data Entry Templates

A data entry attack prompts a learner to enter and submit data into a form. If a learner did this with a real phishing attempt they could give away their credentials or other confidential information. Your SecurityIQ platform includes built-in Data Entry Templates. You can also edit existing or create your own data entry templates.

No information captured by a data entry template is collected by your SecurityIQ platform.

To start navigate to Data Entry Templates under PhishSim.

Notice the three tabs System, Contributed, and Personal. System Templates are templates creating by Infosec Institute and included with your SecurityIQ platform. Contributed are templates that other SecurityIQ customers have created and chosen to share. Personal templates are templates that you have created within the platform.

Under each of the above tabs, the templates are divided into categories you can expand or contract a category by clicking the + or – icon.  

You can also search for templates by clicking the search icon. 

Previewing a Data Entry Template

Email Templates

Email templates are the emails that are sent out to your learners during PhishSim campaigns. There are many system and contribute templates for you to choose from. You can also create custom templates.

To start navigate to Email Templates under PhishSim.

Notice the three tabs System, Contributed, and Personal. System Templates are templates creating by Infosec Institute and included with your SecurityIQ platform. Contributed are templates that other SecurityIQ customers have created and chosen to share. Personal templates are templates that you have created within the platform.

Under each of the above tabs, the templates are divided into categories you can expand or contract a category by clicking the + or – icon.  

You can also search for templates by clicking the search icon.

Attack Types

Drive By – The purpose of a drive-by attack is simply to get a learner to click on a link contained in the email. Once they have done this, they will be directed to a web page which contains the training content you have defined in the template.

Attachment – When an attachment attack is conducted, PhishSim will include a file attachment with the email. When a learner opens the attachment, a macro is executed within the document which notifies the SecurityIQ platform that the user has opened the file. You can choose from three different file types to include in the email and also provide a name for the attachment. When providing the name, you do not need to include the file extension. This will automatically be added when the email is sent, based on the type of file being included. The three file types which can currently be attached are Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Data Entry – Many breaches that occur are the result of a data entry attack in which a user is taken to a web page designed to look like a legitimate site such as Google. The user is then prompted to enter a username, password, or other information. In a real-world scenario, this data would be collected and used to gain access to the user’s account. In PhishSim, we present the learner with a fake login page and then simply register whether or not they entered any data in the form and submitted it. None of the entered data is collected or stored.

When the Data Entry attack type is selected, an additional configuration field is displayed in which you can select the Data Entry Page to be displayed when the learner clicks the link in their email.

 

Previewing an Email Template

  1. Hover over the email template you would like to preview and click the preview icon. The preview will open a new browser tab.
     

Creating an Email Template

  IMPORTANT – If an Email Template is created from external source code, SecurityIQ will automatically sanitize any links that may be included in the source code and redirect them back to a PhishSim landing page. This ensures that emails received by learners will not direct them to a malicious site.

 

 

  1. Click the New Template button.
  2. Name the template.
  3. Select the From Email by clicking the gear icon.
  4. Enter a From Name.

  8. Select the education your learners will receive after getting phished. After selecting the education you can preview it by clicking the Preview Education button.
  9. Edit your email using the built-in editor. Notice that under tools you can select the Source code tool. This tool will allow you to edit existing or paste new HTML. This can be useful to copy emails that you have seen in the wild. Any links in your HTML source code will automatically be sanitized and redirected back to a SecurityIQ landing page.
  10. You can customize your email body, from name and subject using variables. Variables will pull the related data from your SecurityIQ platform on a per learner basis. For example, if you use the {{learner_first}} variable, every email will be customized with the first name of the learner it was sent to. Notice that the {{footer}} variable is required. For further: https://securityiq.infosecinstitute.com/Documentation/phishingTemplates
  11. You can preview the template by clicking the Preview in Browser or Email Preview to Me button. Note that the while previewing the email footer will show even if it is suppressed in your SecurityIQ Settings. If you selected to suppress the footer it will be suppressed during a PhishSim campaign.

 

Creating a Template with Phish Indicators

Phish Indicators are another way to educate your learners after they have been phished. A phished learner will see the email they received overlaid with indicators. These indicators can be used to point out things that your learners should watch for to avoid phishing.

  1. Create a new Education for the Phish Indicators.
  2. Under the PhishSim menu navigate to Education and click the New Education button.
  3. On the left-hand side select the “Phishing Indicators” Option.
