About Us

In 2021, PhishNet emerged from the depths of the East Australian current, in the South Pacific Ocean at 33.7694° S, 151.2920° E.

Our passion is to empower individuals to identify and combat everyday scams and cyber threats, strengthening defences and safeguarding businesses.

The PhishNet logo draws inspiration from the Anglerfish, utilising its luminescent fin ray as a versatile tool for both offense and defense.

Just as the Anglerfish evades predators and locates prey with precision, our logo symbolises our unwavering vigilance against cybercriminals.
