Technical security requirements are well understood as part of an organisation’s security management practice, but the human aspect of security is often overlooked. More and more security breaches can be attributed to social engineering, particularly with the prevalence of social media and the widespread dissemination and blurring of the lines between personal and corporate information.
Test your People – Social Engineering
To test your business’s resilience to social engineering, Perspective Risk devises bespoke social engineering attacks tailored to your organisation, which do not cause any damage but highlight the vulnerabilities. We have years of experience developing attacks based on sound psychological principles, which provide realistic scenarios. Typically these scenarios include email-based phishing, smishing (SMS/Text phishing), vishing (voice/telephone social engineering) and media delivery via both email and traditional postal methods.
Don’t forget Physical Security
Our social engineering methodology also includes comprehensive assessments of physical security, whereby attempts are made to circumvent any physical security mechanisms or procedures in order to gain access to organisational assets.
