Social engineering is the non-technical cracking of information security. It applies deception for the sole purpose of gathering information, fraud or system access.

A number of tactics may be used, including:

  • Taking advantage of human kindness
  • Searching for sensitive data outside of a computer, like looking inside a dumpster
  • Obtaining computer passwords via covert methods

Social engineering was initially associated with the social sciences. However, the way it is used also makes it relevant to computer professionals, as it is a significant threat to any system’s security.

Why you need a Social Engineering Test?

By performing periodic social engineering attacks such as phishing attacks or spear phishing attacks ( targeted phishing attacks ) or even on site physical penetration testing attacks you can determine the level of maturity your organisation has reached from an awareness point of view with regards to social security and human hacking. This will help you plan your future awareness campaigns to stomp out any data leakage that can occur from a social engineering attack.

How can a social engineering attack affect your business and employees ?

There are several methods that the malicious individual can use to try to breach the information security defenses of an organization. The human approach, often termed Social Engineering, is one of them. This paper describes Social Engineering and its cost to the organization. It discusses the various forms of Social Engineering, and how they take advantage of human behavior. It also discusses ways to fight and prevent social engineering attacks, and highlights the importance of policy and education in winning the battle.

What are the benefits of a Social Hacking Test?

Security awareness training can go a long way in preventing social engineering attacks. If people know what form a social engineering attack is likely to take, they will be less likely to fall victim to one. Organizations also perform penetration testing using social engineering techniques. This allows security teams to know which users pose a risk and thus can take steps to remediate that risk. A Social Engineering test is a useful way to prevent social engineering attacks.

Our Methodology

A social engineer runs what used to be called a “con game.” For example, a person using social engineering to break into a computer network might try to gain the confidence of an authorized user and get them to reveal information that compromises the network’s security. Social engineers often rely on the natural helpfulness of people as well as on their weaknesses. They might, for example, call the authorized employee with some kind of urgent problem that requires immediate network access. Appealing to vanity, appealing to authority, appealing to greed, and old-fashioned eavesdropping are other typical social engineering techniques.
