Hoxhunt – Reduce your human cybersecurity risk


Measurable behavior change. Enviable resilience.

Attacks start with targeting employees. So should the solution. With Hoxhunt, you’ll achieve real risk reduction with measurable security behavior change that keeps pace with an ever-evolving threat landscape. Go beyond awareness to real risk reduction.

Customized experiences by language, role, and location
Realistic simulations based on up-to-date threat intelligence
Prioritized rollout based on your most at risk department / geography / group

Security behavior change doesn’t stop at training. Mobilize employees to report real attacks.

People are your most intelligent detection resource. With Hoxhunt you’ll motivate and enable them to recognize and report the nastiest threats: the ones that get through your cybersecurity technology layers. Hoxhunt leverages AI and behavioral science to sharpen detection skills and make reporting a natural reflex.

Behavioral science techniques and game mechanics to drive engagement
Just-in-time training on the most malicious real threats reported
AI-based user learning paths that adapt to evolving skill levels

Find real attacks in the noise. Eliminate threats faster.

Focus your limited SOC analyst resources on the few cases that matter most and stop serious incidents before they happen. Hoxhunt analyzes 93,000 new threats every month from a global network of 1.5 million human sensors in 130 countries. Using AI, our threat clustering engine then combines any duplicate reports into a single incident for faster response.

Key questions for security and risk leaders

If you have other questions, we’re happy to help you at contact@hoxhunt.com

Are you concerned about attacks from phishing and BEC?

Most security leaders today accept that data breaches are a question of ‘when,’ not ‘if,’ because most have responded to an incident within the past few years. What’s important now is for executive leadership (CEOs and Boards) to have that sense of urgency. CEOs need to shake hands with CISOs and foster a security culture where human risk—which is by far the greatest source of risk—is actively measured, managed, and mitigated.

What are some key methods to change cyber security behavior?

Security behavior change programs work best because they function on a set of proven principles grounded in neuro-and-behavioral science and geared for measurable outcomes.  Behavior change starts with engagement: learn to report threats in a safe and fun environment with a simple button. Do it frequently enough for recognize-and-report to become a reflex. AI has enabled individualized learning journeys to be delivered at the edge of people’s skill levels. Adaptive learning models keep security awareness and phishing simulations in the Goldilocks zone of ‘just right’ so they’re not too easy to get boring, and just hard enough to stay interesting. Game mechanics encourage ongoing participation by rewarding people’s good actions and tracking their skills and progress along a gamified journey. These personalized and positive learning experiences utilize nudge theory, and they must be delivered frequently in very short micro-trainings.

How has WFH and distributed workforces complicated data security efforts?

The attack surface expands exponentially when individual employees and outsourced business functions are working out in the wild on multiple devices, any one of which can be transformed by a threat actor into a weak link into the system with one bad click. Security teams can mitigate that risk by adding capabilities such as endpoint detection and response, auto-updates and patching, MFA, and zero trust practices. But ultimately it comes down to hardening the human layer, so people can catch sophisticated attacks that evade all of the cyber security technology layers.

How must thinking about data security change in 2024?

It’s critical in 2023 to adopt new approaches. The historical approach to managing human risk has simply not been working for a very long time. Security and risk leaders know this but have refused to try something new. And while the cybersecurity game has continued to evolve in 2023, the key players remain the same: it’s all about the human layer. That’s who the attackers are going after; and our solutions should address this key attack surface. The human layer of security can and should be utilized as an asset and not the weakest link. It’s vital to take a risk-based approach that goes far beyond mere compliance and extends into protect-detect-respond capabilities.

How prepared do you think organizations are to defend against data breaches?

Does over half your workforce knows what to do when a phish lands in their inbox? Do you have the data to identify and correct risky pockets of cyber behavior in the human layer, and the visibility into your threat feed to contain detected threats? Not many organizations do, because few have gone beyond awareness training and invested in a security behavior change program; so it stands to reason that most companies are not adequately prepared to fend off a human-targeted attack, which are involved in at least 83% of all breaches. Leading analysts from Gartner advocated for going beyond compliance-based awareness training to enable human risk management with measurable security behavior and culture transformation.
