Social engineering is the process of finding personally identifiable or sensitive information in order to deceive or manipulate a person or organisation into performing an action which breaches physical or information security.
We will check whether your organisation is resistant to a variety of simulated social engineering attacks, conducted over the Internet, over the phone or physically at your premises. We understand that information for organisations is a key asset and protecting that information is vital. Organisations can spend large amounts of money protecting the IT infrastructure on which the information is stored and processed, but sometimes overlook the weakest point of the system - the users.
The aim of social engineering is to extract sensitive company information by exploiting your personnel.
Social engineering as a method of information gathering has become more prominent in recent years due to media attention and advancements in computer security. Readily available information may allow an attacker to obtain details about an organisation, employees and the infrastructure utilised by them. We recognise that all organisations are different so a personal approach is always undertaken.
