Social Engineering is the technique of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Social engineering schemes are becoming more sophisticated, and financial institutions are increasingly at risk for these types of attacks. Employee training and subsequent testing of the employees’ understanding are the keys to the risk of social engineering attacks. NETBankAudit’s assessments are designed to evaluate the practical effectiveness of employee’s security awareness. The assessment emulates a real-life scenario that an attacker may use to gain unauthorized access into the institution’s internal network. Our assessments are performed in a professional manner and the results are conveyed as learning opportunities rather than criticisms. This approach enables the institution to benefit from this type of assessment without adversely affecting employee morale.
We offer the following types of Social Engineering assessments:
- Email Phishing
- Pre-text Calling
- Unannounced On-site Visits and Social Tests
