Hacking the Human - An Introduction to Social Engineering >>>
How easy is it for a malicious hacker to bypass all of your IT security investment and gain access to your critical information?
Breaches of information security are often more than technical IT security failures. Social engineering techniques are widely used to target the human element of your security.
Once vulnerabilities are identified, usually through a testing service, we can help you quickly develop effective countermeasures.
In many cases, a targeted programme of awareness building and training can make significant improvements. However, in our experience, there will remain a level of human vulnerability, even after extensive training. Also, in some environments where you may have high staff turnover, training and awareness activities may not be cost-effective.
Systemic improvements are specific process changes that help to create a barrier around the human vulnerabilities in your systems. Our extensive experience in uncovering human vulnerabilities gives us unique insight into the development of countermeasures.
