Threat Ops

Social Engineering, Physical Intrusion & Phishing

90% of security attacks are due to human error. Highlighting the gaps in your User Security layer is one of the quickest wins when it comes to your organisations cyber resilience.

It’s a known fact that users are the weakest link in securing your organisation. Without knowing what to look for and how to protect against social engineering attacks, your users might end up being used to compromise your organisation.

Social Engineering and Physical Intrusion testing aims to highlight gaps in your users’ resilience against such attacks, performing the same attacks that are likely to allow attackers in.

Testing your human factor

To minimise your users potentially compromising organisational security, Its important you run controlled test. Content Security conduct a variety or programs designed to test real world scenarios.

Email phishing: Users will be sent an email containing misleading information tempting them into running potentially malicious software.

Phone: A social engineering specialist will call multiple users and attempt to gain information, passwords and access to the user system.

USB Drop: A social engineering specialist will leave a number of USB sticks on customer premises containing specialised software. This software will alert Content Security if the USB is inserted into a system and run.

Physical Intrusion: Security consultants will attempt to break into a customer location through tailgating, social engineering, and manipulation of access control systems.
