What are 'Email Attachments' in phishing simulations?

When creating a phish simulation email, you are presented with the option to include an attachment.

This adds an additional layer of challenge to a phishing simulation, as it tests whether the user would interact and download a document that is attached to a phishing email.

There are two attachment types to choose from:

  1. Word Document
  2. HTML

(Note: You cannot upload or select a certain HTML or Word Document as these are not a physical attachment. These are trackable and are in-built to the platform.)

  • Attachment Name: The name of the attachment is to be populated within here, e.g. a name that is relevant to the organisation.
  • Attachment Type: 'Word Document' or 'HTML' will appear in the drop-down.
