LUCY Security remains innovative and grows in Asia and South America

  • Deutsche Bahn is a major new customer of renown. This proves that customers of all sizes can benefit from the product’s new efficiency potential
  • With the Chilean Pentest SPA, LUCY Security was able to win a very renowned partner in South America. The company offers its services far beyond national borders.
  • In India, LUCY Server is already very popular. Indian company Irisk Assurance is now the first partner on the subcontinent
  • The current version of LUCY V3.7 has a lot of new functionality for the automated analysis of suspicious emails by the user.

ZURICH (06.11.2017) The Equifax Databreach in the United States and the wave of phishing attacks on the largest Swiss email portal bluewin.ch at the end of October clearly show the technical, organizational and personnel weaknesses of today’s security arrangements.  It is therefore not surprising that the Swiss provider of cyber prevention products LUCY Security continues to grow rapidly and internationally. In recent months, Chilean and Indian partner companies have been trained and certified to handle the product LUCY Server. The customer portfolio is also growing internationally and Deutsche Bahn has gained a reference that is known far beyond the German border. Deutsche Bahn can also benefit from the new and comprehensive interface capabilities of LUCY V 3.7.

Protection against petya or #notpetya cyber attack

Zurich (June 28, 2017) Lucy Security is launching a new version of Lucy Server on July 1, which contains #notpeya simulations in the standard product. Lucy Security wants to contribute to the effective containment of malware with this action.

The worldwide #notpetya attack of June 27, 2017 has probably originated in an infected software update. But there are also reports that the spreading was carried out with the help of a spear phishing attack combined with a malware infected MS-Excel file.

The initial infection is first made possible by the carelessness of the user. In addition to the circumvention of the user vulnerabilities of the computer are specifically sought and exploited. Inadequate security settings in Windows allow only to install the malware permanently and to ensure the distribution. It is evident in this case that security is always a combination of man and technology, and should not be viewed in isolation.

LUCY is the world’s only provider of cyber prevention products, which actively simulates this combined attack pattern: users and additionally the IT infrastructure are tested jointly. In addition to phishing simulations, LUCY offers the unique malware simulation, which checks possibly unsecure Windows settings. Integrated learning modules are also included.

To this end, from 1 July the attack template, which is based on #notpetya, is available for download. For more information and a link to download Lucy Server at: www.lucysecurity.com/download

LUCY Security is growing and expanding: Value Added Partners in Great Britain and Canada

  • With approximately 50% of sales, the English-speaking areas represent the most important market area for the Swiss product manufacturer
  • The Cybersecurity training company, Kereon, strengthens its existing presence in the Canadian market.
  • The IT security service provider,  Neoteric Networks, is the second certified implementation partner in the UK.
  • The partners bring the cyber prevention product, LUCY, closer to local SMEs.

ZURICH (June-6-2017) the cyberattacks against companies haven’t halted. Smaller companies are particularly the sufferers of such attacks. The subject of cyber prevention is actually very topical in the English-speaking areas. With two additional partners in the UK and Canada, the Swiss company LUCY Security is responding to the strong demand.

LUCY-Security is a Swiss company, with customers in over 50 countries. The product, LUCY-Server, enables companies to be able to implement realistic cyberattacks simulations for testing purposes, since 2015. At the same time, customized security awareness programs and early warning systems can be used to increase cyber security for employees. The LUCY Server also performs the first-time cyber prevention in the form of a standardized product that is affordable for everyone. In addition customers are given the opportunity to test and improve their IT security, even without special know-how.

Through the LUCY partners in the UK and Canada, our do-it-yourself products are moving closer to the less globally operating small and medium-sized enterprises. Having a local partner (on site) helps us a lot, especially as our LUCY Server is much more known in the English-speaking market than at home in Switzerland. The USA, Canada and the UK contribute to almost half to the turnover”, says LUCY founder Oliver Münchow.

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 Kereon.

Hacker attacks: prevention is urgently needed

The WannyaCry and Gdrive attacks make it clear: Cyberprevention is urgently needed for big and small organisations.
Zurich (June-5-2017)

  • Most successful cyber-attacks are carried out through the careless actions by employees.
  • Simulated cyber attacks and security education become a real need for companies of all sizes.
  • Till now, professional IT-Security awareness solutions are still expensive and are only available for large companies.
  • The world novelty LRS (Lucy Risk Score) calculates the risk probability for each email and enables users to visually identify dangers.
  • The LUCY Phishing, Training and Alerting Server is available free of charge for SMEs of up to 50 employees.
  • LUCY Server V3.5 contains a worldwide innovation that has an integrated threat analysis, with the help of the Lucy Risk Score, which spots e-mail threats and makes them visible and easily identifiable.

The cyber-attacks against smaller, less well-protected companies have greatly increased in recent months – attacks from the last weeks are just the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to these attacks, criminals are of course also able to get at big companies. The most important protection barrier and the most popular attack target is the human being as a user and co-worker, who without any malicious intent, opens the virtual door to the company for cyber criminals.

The LUCY-Server product has been on the market for two years, and enables companies to perform realistic cyber-attack simulations such as phishing campaigns or USB attacks for educational and training purposes, not only to protect themselves, but to achieve effective prevention. The parallel awareness programs that increase employee safety and the IT security checks on the computer side have also been part of the scope of services since the beginning.

Such a combined offer is unique worldwide.

At the end of 2016, the “Phishing Incident Plugin for Microsoft Outlook” introduced a notification procedure with a built-in workflow, for reporting suspicious e-mails. This plug-in is new with version 3.5 available for all commercial editions of LUCY and it is therefore also accessible and affordable to small companies now. Together with the Threat Analyzer, there is a comprehensive threat and risk analysis of received e-mails.

LUCY uses the Phish Risk Score to calculate the threat probability for each e-mail and makes them visible, in order to ensure that both trained and untrained users are better protected. This innovation is the world’s first multi-level analysis of suspicious emails and it allows the issuing of a particularly meaningful key figure LRS (LUCY Risk Score).

Hot topic WannaCry: Significant response to LUCY in the Swiss business and Sunday press

Zürich-Thalwil, 20. Mai 2017 – The global WannaCry attack has put the issue of ransomware and malware countermeasures in the public focus. LUCY is now acknowledged in the leading media of the Swiss press as one of the pillars in the fight against cycled crime!

The economic crime now takes place in Cyberspace. This has now become clear to all. The most important point of defense as well as attack are the people, whether as an employee or private individual.

In the past, safety systems and large companies were the focus of attention. People were neglected and the SMEs were not yet interesting for the criminals. That has changed, even before WannaCry small companies have been increasingly blackmailed with Ransomware. In the meantime the ransom came down to about 600 USD / 400 EUR. This is a price the small companies can pay. Now the first background reports on the cybercrime wave 2017 were published in the Swiss press: The “Handelszeitung” on 18 May and  the “Schweiz am Wochenende” on 20 May 2017 published long articles and both newspapers address exactly the above topics. We are very pleased that employee awareness and phishing simulations will be publicly addressed to the benefit of the employees!

Of course, we recommend the following articles (in German):
