Building a safer internet
Phished is an AI-driven platform that focuses on the human side of cybersecurity. By combining fully automated training software with personalised, realistic simulations of cyberattacks, Phished teaches your employees how to correctly and safely deal with online threats. Because of this, employees are better prepared and the data, reputation and assets of organisations are more secure.
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.
Arnout Van de Meulebroucke
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.

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
