How Secure is your Business?
Did you know that the weakest link in your company security are people?
Social engineering focuses on the weakness of the human factor. While security software products can defend the institution in many ways on the network level, physical security should not be underestimated or neglected when it comes to social engineering attacks.
Some of the methods used are Shoulder Surfing, Tailgating, Dumpster Diving, Impersonation, Whailing(Targeting high level executives), or Vishing (impersonated phone calls), and Hoaxes.
Workshops for non-technical personnel should be regularly held to inform them about evolving social engineering tactics. Social engineering, is first of all, a human attack.
