    We want to run a phishing simulation, but we're not quite at the point of wanting to pay a vendor or buy software.  Any recommendations for free or DIY simulations?  Any vendor recommendations for when we are at the point of wanting to pay?

    We use KnowBe4 for phishing checks and some cybersecurity training.  We have really just started with them and so far, it is good.  they offer a lot of products and services and have 5 (I think) levels of membership.  We are also a quasi-government non-profit with a not unlimited budget.  Texas requires state affiliated healthcare organizations (mental health/developmental disabilities) to use an approved manner of cybersecurity training and KnowBe4 was the best we found.  KnowBe4 does offer a limited phishing test with no commitment that i used a few years ago.  Up to 100 email addresses if I remember right.  Hope this helps.
