Our mission

Building The Human Firewall

Phished supports the human factor in cybersecurity strategies. By focusing on personal needs, knowledge and experience, we empower individuals to act with confidence when encountering digital threats. Thanks to regular and relevant cyber awareness training, employees know how to recognise risks, how to respond to them and how to mitigate them.

Founder, CEO

Arnout Van de Meulebroucke

Anti-phishing implementation

Arnout started his career implementing different kinds of anti-phishing training. Understanding how time-consuming and complex thorough traditional cybersecurity awareness training can be, led to his development of the automated Phished platform.

Cybersecurity expert & entrepreneur

Arnout is a widely acknowledged expert in phishing and cybersecurity topics, often cooperating with similar authorities in their fields on seminars, webinars, information sharing initiatives and media.

Vision for the future

Phishing will become increasingly difficult. Technical means will never be 100% successful in preventing every kind of cyberattack, which is why organisations need to remain vigilant and be prepared to help their employees in keeping their company safe.
