Social engineering exploits one of the weakest links in security, the Human. It is commonly defined as the process of deceiving people into giving away access or confidential information. When carrying out Social Engineering attacks, Hacker’s are actively exploiting the human tendency to trust. This natural human willingness to accept someone at his or her word and/or appearance leaves many of us vulnerable to this style of attack.
SudoSecure offers Social Engineering assessments and security consulting services to help your organization identify exploitable Social Engineering vulnerabilities. These services are specifically designed to evaluate an organization’s user awareness of specific information security policies and procedures.
SudoSecure strongly encourages organizations to include Social Engineering assessments in their standard penetration testing requirements, as deterministic attackers are using this technique against us everyday with an extremely high success rate.
SudoSecure offers a wide range of Social Engineering test scenarios from an ever-changing list that includes but is not limited to spear-phishing attacks to social networking attacks, phone, USB’s and everything in between.
Although this list is extraordinarily broad, SudoSecure strives to go well beyond these standardized tests and work with organizations to create more realistic and relevant Social Engineering scenarios tailored specifically to meet their needs. Common questions we ask organizations when designing these custom Social Engineering tests are: What do you believe you are vulnerable to, What results are we looking for, and What problems are we trying to solve by performing these tests?
The methods for integrating Social Engineering tests into a penetration test are limited only to our imaginations and the imaginations of our clients. We love working with our clients to create the most effective Social Engineering tests that provide our clients with meaningful data sets and testing results that can be utilized to improve their security awareness and overall security posture.
