Social Engineering awareness will ensure that people are not the weak link in your cyber plan.

Cyber criminals are increasingly turning to social engineering because it is an effective and subtle way to gain access to employee login credentials, personal information and quantities of sensitive data.

Benefits of training for social engineering attacks

A comprehensive security posture

By using education and training techniques to enhance security awareness of social engineering tactics, your workforce will become as knowledgeable as the CISO in what a malicious link via email looks like through phishing attempts.

Peace of mind

Our thorough training in how to respond safely will provide peace of mind at board level that you are doing all you can to safeguard your organisation and sensitive information against cyber criminals.

Reduced the risk through awareness training

We’ll simulate a real-world social engineering attack to see how many employees fall victim to the phishing attempt. We can then educate them on how to spot the tell-tale signs of a phishing attack.

Stakeholder confidence

Engagement with our social engineering training programme demonstrates to both internal and external stakeholders, along with your clients, that you take cyber security seriously.

Social engineering training

We'll find your operational weaknesses

Cyber criminals know that people are often the gateway to sensitive information, valuable credentials and databases or account details. A compromise in security could open up the possibility of identity theft.

  • Cyber-attacks can start with phone calls, private messages or email
  • Cyber criminals may impersonate other members of staff
  • Communications can be compromised
  • Criminals often play on the friendly and helpful nature of your employees
  • We’ll train your staff to spot malicious communications
  • We’ll expose weaknesses in your infrastructure and stop attacks before they happen

Get smart – don’t let a lack of awareness compromise your confidential data.

Even with the most sophisticated security systems in place, your business could still be vulnerable to cyber attack. By manipulating members of your workforce into disclosing passwords and other confidential information, hackers are able to infiltrate your systems and harvest valuable data.

A security breach such as this could cause financial and reputational damage to your organisation.

They’ll make a deal with a member of staff to get what they want in return for a financial incentive or high value gift.

Tailgating

Spear phishing is a highly targeted approach focusing on a single member of your business. They’ll sue personal information specific to the recipient in order to gain trust and appear more legitimate.
