Security Assessments

Social engineering / Phishing and physical penetration testing

With the increasing number of advanced persistent threats (APT) reported and high profile hacks, much attention and hype has been focused on social engineering as a core technique used by organized criminals to penetrate an organization and pilfer information, and / or leave behind a path of destruction. Security is only ever as good as the weakest link, and oftentimes the weakest link is the user element.
Cybecure’s social engineering service is designed to test the security awareness of personnel and how they respond to different levels of information exfiltration techniques. These techniques can be used in conjunction with physical penetration testing to understand the level of access that could be obtained by an unauthorized individual (e.g. access to network ports, server rooms, data storage cabinets, etc).
