Save your Sensitive Data from Social Engineering Attacks
From databases of large enterprises to the mobile devices of employees, sensitive information is everywhere. One leak and a small-scale socially engineered attack may do a huge loss to an enterprise. Since successful social engineering attacks can be extremely costly for organizations, it’s essential to understand how to combat social engineering tactics.
What is Social Engineering Penetration Testing Services?
Using a range of techniques and tools, Social Engineering Penetration Testing typically involves simulating real-world social engineering attacks, such as phishing emails, phone calls, or physical access attempts. The goal is to assess how well employees can identify and respond to these types of attacks, and to identify any weaknesses or vulnerabilities in the organization’s security awareness program.
Social engineering pentest services help in the identification of potential security risks and provide recommendations to improve the security awareness and training program of the organization. This may include recommending changes to policies and procedures, implementing additional security controls, or other measures to improve the security awareness of employees.
The Various Social Engineering Techniques used by Attackers:
BAITING : Tricking a target to provide sensitive data to malicious websites and applications
SCAREWARE : Send fake threats to targets to share their data through a prompt to install software that would protect their system
PRETEXTING : Impersonate coworkers, or banking and other officials and ask targets to provide personal data
PHISHING : Send emails or messages to targets with links that are malware, asking for sensitive information
SPEAR PHISHING : A phishing subtype where the attacker disguises as a higher official to coax a high-priority target to provide sensitive business data.
