The Boxphish Story

Founded in Leeds in 2018, Boxphish has grown from two men with an idea, to a leading player in the cyber security market, recently selected one of Yorkshire’s 50 Most Exciting Companies. We deliver thousands of simulations and interactive training courses each month, reaching organisations across a wide range of industries. Courses are tailored to individual needs, with bespoke content developed based on customer requests. Boxphish is constantly learning and developing, investing in both ourselves and our customers to continue to provide a best-in-class product and always exemplary service.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: we want to educate our users to be more cyber aware. We identify high-risk areas and tailor our courses to them, educating customers on everything from choosing the best password, to avoiding a malware attack. In over 90% of cyber-attacks, human error is involved, so our users are the first line of defence against cybercrime, with our training designed to make them the Ultimate Human Firewall.

Your training begins with targeted phishing simulations, delivered directly to your employees to identify vulnerability and areas for improvement. We then move on to engaging, interactive learning journeys, using short videos, quizzes and games to address these areas. Ultimately creating a culture of cyber awareness and security for your people.
