Phishing and Social Engineering Testing helps weaknesses in your Human elements

Phishing and Social Engineering Test service is a CREST approved, regulated, full-scope, multi-layered attack simulation, orchestrated from the perspective of a malicious threat actor, designed to measure how prepared your infrastructure, applications, people, processes and technologies can defend and withstand an attack from a real-life adversary, while uncovering potential risks and security vulnerabilities.

Phishing and Social Engineering Testing is important for organisations of all sizes and the traditional style of penetration testing has done the job for many years. Now, however, a well structured and scoped penetration test needs to me more than a simple point in time test.

Phishing and Social Engineering Testing

Security breaches of corporate IT networks are often thought to only come as a result of a malicious attack from technically competent computer hackers. However, Phishing and Social Engineering is increasingly being used to help hackers bypass the initial IT security barriers.

Overly helpful employees lacking security awareness can often be duped into providing access to corporate offices or restricted areas such as IT data centres where the hacker has no authorised access.

Using a mix of methodologies Social Engineering attacks can come via a seemingly innocent telephone call, forged email or by physical visits to corporate offices.

How Phishing and Social Engineering Testing Helps

The people and process element of security is often overlooked when allocating budget to Penetration Testing engagements. It is no surprise that attackers are also aware of this and looking at some very high profile attacks it is clear that Social Engineering techniques were utilised by the attackers as a way to extract reconnaissance information or to gain access to physical locations.

Our Phishing and Social Engineering testing service experts are adept at discovering and exploiting operational weaknesses in corporate policies and procedures that can unwittingly lead to unauthorised access to restricted systems.

Using the Open Social Engineering Framework methodology, our social engineering assessment consultants can set up a covert Social Engineering project aimed at testing the robustness of your internal systems and provide practical advice on what changes are needed to prevent a real attack succeeding.

The service would be delivered as part of our Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) and full access to the client portal would be provided.
