Social Engineering

What is Social Engineering?

Social engineering is a method of using non-technical tools and skill to bypass security controls that are often technical in nature and have had a considerable amount of investment, such as secured document repositories, strong password policies etc.

Social engineering is used to circumvent many of these controls by manipulating and influencing people, who are often lacking in security awareness, encouraging them to offer up information, enabling the hacker to bypass several, if not all of these controls.

Humans can be inherently helpful and friendly; we are tailored by society and parental upbringing to be so. This is also our weakness when it comes to security and something a social engineer seeks to exploit.

Social engineering attacks can manifest in a multitude of techniques often disguised as being very innocent, such as an email, telephone call or a site visit.

Why US

How We Do it.

DigitalXRAID’s social engineering professionals are experts in finding weaknesses in operational procedures, corporate polices and security awareness. These weaknesses can be exploited by hackers and criminals to gain access to restricted systems or valuable data.

We work closely with each client, as every engagement is unique and offers its own challenges. Using the Open Social Engineering Framework, we ensure the same thorough process for all our engagements.

On completion, our findings are used to create bespoke security awareness training programmes, to provide a targeted mechanism for mitigating these vulnerabilities.
