User Security Training

Social engineering involves the manipulation or deception of individuals when trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems. In social engineering situations, attackers need to achieve access to avoid the various preventative security measures such as firewalls. In short, we can deploy the best IT security controls in the world, but the weakest link is often unwitting staff.


Our services in this area consist of assessment and training.


A social engineering assessment will see how susceptible employees within your organisation are to various social engineering methods such as phishing attacks or Trojan viruses. We will attempt to deceptively achieve privileges and gain access to systems which are agreed prior to testing. Through the exposure of weakness in security, we will report on the vulnerabilities in a fully comprehensive report delivered face to face to enable discussion and full understanding of the risks identified.


Our training services can then be deployed to educate staff about how to minimise the risk of social engineering.
