Social Engineering Attack Simulations

The human factor is the biggest risk for the information in your IT environment. Companies constantly seek to enhance their technical security implementations to prevent cyberattacks. However, threat actors target the company where the security is most neglected – the users.

Social engineering is employing the use of deceptive techniques to manipulate individuals into divulging sensitive information.

Transactions and interactions in every organization typically involve many people. Criminals are slick and will actively use social engineer tactics to target anyone associated with your organization with the intent to exploit them to gain access to sensitive information.
