“Our evaluation has shown that LUCY-Server is the best tool for performing phishing tests for our customers and partners. The flexibility and ease-of-use of the user interface enables us to save a lot of time, prepare different scenarios, and to carry out campaign during operations. We can only recommend LUCY!” – Patrick Chouinard, Chairman of the Board, Kereon.
“Kereon helps us to move our do-it-yourself products closer to the Canadian enterprises. Having a local helps us a lot, especially as our LUCY Server is much more known in the English-speaking market than at home in Switzerland. Canada including its Franco Canadian regions, the United Kingdom and the USA contribute to almost half to our turnover”, says LUCY founder Oliver Münchow.

All you need to know about LUCY Server on one sheet of paper. The Two Pager Overview for LUCY V 3.4.
The functionality of the Cyber Prevention and Training Server is displayed on a single page using a simple feature list. Explore the full functionality of LUCY Server in a compressed form.
Key findings: 84% of the participants recommend LUCY Security and two-thirds of the respondents are willing to call themselves publicly as a reference customer! And more than 70% of the participants are interested in a user group.
For us, it is also interesting that almost half of the submitted suggestions for improvement are already available as LUCY features.
In Feb / Mar 2017, clients of LUCY Security were asked to conduct a customer survey. The return rate was relatively high at 28.4%. The survey was conducted by the company itself on the basis of a short email questionnaire.
LUCY Security was not founded until 2015. The fact that such a young and still small cyber security product manufacturer gets so good grades after such a short time is evidence of the quality of the product and suggests that Swissness is also a not to be underestimated competitive factor.
Furthermore, the results are amazing, because the IT security industry is known for its secrecy. The high popularity rates for a public user group suggest a rethinking in the market that cyber crime can only be fight and confined together. Secrecy is detrimental to the security of the company on the Internet!

Adapt LUCY’s Ransomware Explainer Video to your own needs. Owners of a commercial edition can customize every educational video delivered by LUCY for a reasonable price.
Our Ransomware video explains in less than two minutes how to protect against Ransomware attacks. This is about the behaviour of each individual: do not open links from unknown, think twice before you click.
Many customers use the video without customization to train your organization. But there is also a considerable amount that want to individualize the video or they want to add customer-specific information into the video. With the help of our storybooks, which we deliver to the customer as needed, this is done quickly. This allows the desired changes or extensions to be clearly and easily documented and specified.
Thus, a rapid and low-cost individualisation of the learning content is made possible.

An interview with Patrick Zeller, Senior Manager Enterprise Security, Robert Bosch LLC.
March 2017 – “Bosch” is one of LUCY Security’s first major customers. Thanks to its support, the LUCY Phishing and Awareness Training Server was able to develop rapidly. At the beginning of the year 2017, we interviewed Mr. Zeller on the use and experiences with the products.
Mr. Zeller, how and to what extent does Robert Bosch use the LUCY server?
Patrick Zeller: We use Lucy to educate our employees around the world, on the dangers and risks of phishing and to raise awareness about this. Our employees are given the opportunity to gain experience on this topic, within a safe environment.
And since when is the product been used by Bosch? Can you tell us something about the volume of the already-conducted campaigns?
P.Z.: After an initial evaluation in autumn 2015, we have been using the LUCY Phishing Awareness Training Server since spring 2016. We have conducted various campaigns in more than 10 different languages, with up to 300,000 recipients. Also, since the end of 2016 we have been using the new function of “USB phishing”.
Can you now say something on the benefits of the phishing simulations; has the awareness against cyber risks actually increased among the employees?
We have not yet performed enough campaigns to have proving evidence, with regard to the “click-through rates”. We expect the first KPIs by the middle of the year. However, the feedback of our employees on the respective campaigns is very positive. What we can say with certainty is that we have noticed a significant increase in the notification rates / reports on phishing emails to our internal CERT, as a result of the phishing campaigns carried out so far. This indicates an increasing general awareness of our employees.
Do you remember the incidents; have there been fewer breaches, infections, or something similar?
These are internal data on which I unfortunately cannot comment on. However, since security have always been a top priority for Bosch, we have traditionally been very well positioned here. We see the topic “Security Awareness Phishing” as a complementary tool and measure in our IT security portfolio.
Thank you, Mr. Zeller. Let’s now get to the product itself: why did Robert Bosch GmbH opt for LUCY?
In addition to its excellent price / performance ratio, the decisive factor was the fact that we could completely run the LUCY Phishing Awareness Training Server in-house or on-premise. This is important to us, as it ensures that no sensitive data from our employees leaves the company. Overall, this equally helped us to obtain approval from our worker`s council, since we could convincingly demonstrate and ensure that no employees are monitored. LUCY gives us the flexibility to individually design campaigns and to execute them completely anonymously. It is our goal to train our employees and not to carry out performance checks on them!
And how were the experiences so far?
Overall, it is very positive; as such, we’ve decided to continue with the LUCY Phishing Awareness Training Server. We appreciate the close contact with LUCY’s developers, who can directly support us in case of problems and who are always open for new feature requests. With the version 2.x, we had some performance issues at the beginning, but since the version 3.0, the product has significantly matured and it runs reliably. Unfortunately, the report generator can only be used to a limited extent, because we have very specific requirements, which is due to the size and complexity of our organization. Fortunately however, we can solve this by exporting the results, which we then appropriately prepare for ourselves, through our database applications.
Can you tell us about your favorite features or templates and how are you satisfied with the product?
To be honest, we rarely used pre-made templates in the past. We have too much fun in implementing our own ideas. In general, LUCY’s flexibility is certainly a feature which we greatly appreciate. Also, the “Randomized Phishing” and the “Double Barrel Attacks” are among our favorite features, since they are very efficient and easy to configure. Currently we are looking at the new Phishing Incident Plugin for Microsoft Outlook (Note: Phishing alert button). Overall I can say that LUCY is a very efficient tool for my team, for creating awareness amongst our employees and it meets all our requirements!
Thank you very much for this interview, Mr. Zeller.
 In a double barrel attack, the system first sends the user a lure email with a teaser text. The system then waits for some time, before the actual phishing email is sent to the user.
About the LUCY Phishing Awareness Training Server
The LUCY Phishing Awareness Training Server is used for the simulation of technical social engineering attacks and it is universally applicable from SMEs (Small and Medium size Enterprises) right up to large customers. The product can locally be installed at the customer’s location; a cloud variant is also available. The Swiss solution provides dozens of preconfigured phishing templates and training modules, which can be independently used by the end user. Through the “Phishing Incident Plugin” for Microsoft Outlook, the user is opportune by his/her quick reception of an alert, in the event of an attack; this thus reduces the work put in by the security team in the analysis of the threat.

After 2 (two!) minutes you have a cloned website for your Phishing Scenario. LUCY Social Engineering Simulation Server empowers you when you set up an IT-Security Awareness Campaign [Screencast].
Advanced Phishing Simulations: Clone a Website and add your own Login Form – Do you want to create a phishing simulation and you want to use an already existing website as a landing page? This 2 minute video shows you quickly how to create a custom landing page with the website copy feature and adding a custom login form for data capture.
Just create a new scenario and select an empty Web based scenario. You can also select any other Web based scenario template for the social engineering simulation you want to customize, because the “Website Copy Feature” overwrites the default Landing Page of the template.
The steps described in the webcast are
- In LUCY, create a new campaign, edit the basic settings and save it
- Create a new scenario by selecting a Web based attack template (or chose an empty one), populate all mandatory fields and save it.
- Go to the Landing Page Menu Item of the scenario you created just before
- Push the “Copy Website Button”, the ‘WebSiteCopy’ dialogue appears
- Fill out the fields:
- URL – The source website you want to copy
- Language – With that you’re defining your language version (LUCY allows multiple languages in the same campaign)
- File – Select the appropriate value in the poplist, choose f.e. index.html
- Push the “Start” Button and the Website Copy is executed. Even really big sites can be copied. And it’s fast!
- After the copy is finished, use the Back Button of the dialoge (not of the browser)
- Go into the editor, place the cursor where you want to add the login form, push the button “Insert Login Form”
- The System provides you three predefined login forms. Select an appropriate one and press OK. If you want to modify it later on, you can do that manually.
- The login form appears on the landing page from you social engineering simulation / phishing scenario. Save your setup of the landing page and you’re done with it!
Thank you for using LUCY. If you want to see the full end-to-end process from setting up the campaign until sending out and tracking the phishing simulation messages, the just watch the longer webcast below.

How do you read the results of a Phishing Campaign containing an file attachment or even of a Ransomware Simulation? A hands-on example explains how to get campaign insights and how to read LUCY Phishing Reports.
The initial situation and the question
You prepared a file based phishing scenario. The attachement is a word file containing a ‘malicious’ macro. And now you want to track the results.
Say you sent 50 messages, 20 were clicked (good campaign!), vou got 2 file downloads and 1 user activated the macros.
The Question: How can you list the users who downloaded the file, but didn’t activate the macros? For example you’re should have a list of 2 users somewhere for this but you can’t find it.
The Answers: Analyzing the Phishing Reports
1. Who downloaded the File and who did activate the macros? You can see who clicked, and who executed the file (success) in CSV for example (here’s an example of mixed scenario with macro) and the success condition set to “Data Submit”. As you can see it’s only the last user who downloaded AND executed the file has a ‘success entry’. The user who only accessed the file has only a success entry at link click (column ‘clicked):
2. Download summaries are visible in overall stats:
3. See in detail how downloaded what and how was the success: But if you want to see in detail who downloaded a file you can sort the phishing report list by a variable that only appears if the user accessed the webpage (e.g. plugins) and then you can see in the details if the user downloaded the file and executed the file (= The check mark at “Successful Attack”)…
…or only accessed the link, downloaded the file, but did not execute the file (no success check mark):
5. Alternative: Analyze transmitted Data back to LUCY – Another possibility to track only users who executed the simulation is to actually see under “Collected Data”. Such an event when a user is clicking a link/file is reported back to LUCY:
