We are pleased to announce that RedTeam Security has officially expanded its services to include Social Engineering. While we have been performing this service for several years to existing customers, we've decided to offer this service for the first time publicly. Our service is complete and comprehensive and we know that you will find it truly beneficial.
Social Engineering testing is extremely valuable in measuring staff adherence to policies, including the handling of malicious email attachments, unauthorized information disclosure via telephone or fax, confidential document disposal and handling vendor/visitor access to conference rooms, data centers, server rooms, network closets, file rooms and more.
What is Social Engineering?
Social engineering, in the context of security, is understood to mean the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. It is typically trickery or deception for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or computer system access.
How is the testing performed?
Testing is delivered in multiple fashions. Here are a few examples of testing scenarios:
* Onsite Testing - Overt (Masquerading as telephone repair person, engage staff)
* Onsite Testing - Covert (Tailgating, covertly access server room)
* Email Phishing (Enticing users into opening email attachments)
* Telephone Pre-texting (Enticing users/Help Desk to divulge sensitive information)
* Fax Pre-texting (Blind requests for sensitive information)
* Sensitive Document Disposal (Dumpster diving)
We deliver a comprehensive report, complete with physical/photographic/electronic evidence, detailing the results and recommendations for improvement.
Our Social Engineering clients range from Banks to Tech to Manufacturing whose primary driver is anywhere from Regulatory Compliance (FFIEC, HIPAA, PCI, SOX/GLBA) to responding to a data breach. Social Engineering testing helps organizations identify security weaknesses, measure compliance and improve their security posture safely and securely.
