Social Engineering is the act of using various methods of manipulation to gain access to information through human interaction – often by tricking an individual into breaking normal security procedures.
These forms of manipulation can involve phishing emails, bogus/spoof telephone calls, gaining unauthorised access to a business’ premises, accessing private areas of the premises without supervision, and accessing the company’s network to obtain information.
You can lessen the risk and impact of being breached through social engineering through the services offered by our specialist consultants. They can analyse the propensity of social engineering attacks within your company and identify any ongoing risks posed by backdoors into your systems and faulty spam filters. Our social engineering security assessment provides software, training and general housekeeping guidance which, once implemented, can reduce the impact of social engineering attacks.
Furthermore, through training with Xyone, you could increase the security of your system, informing your staff about the measures that can be taken to reduce how much secure information is shared.
Social engineering is the biggest threat facing any security system as it depends on human factors.
Our training is developed to aid prevention by educating people about the value of the information they have access to, training them to protect it and increasing awareness of how social engineers operate and the effects of an attack.
We provide a comprehensive range of penetration testing, certification, information security consultancy and managed services for SMEs, public sector organisations and larger corporates looking to protect their business and enhance overall security of their IT systems.
