Why Should I Conduct Social Engineering Testing?
A social engineering test is a simulated attack from the perspective of a bad actor, such as a malicious hacker. The objective is to simulate a cyber security attack and attempt to uncover security vulnerabilities that might otherwise be discovered by hackers. In doing so, you would gain valuable insight into the security posture of the assets and be able to fix them before hackers are able to cause serious damage by exploiting them.
Hackers who use social engineering are constantly coming up with new means of attack; that's why it's so important to work with third-party testing professionals who are on the cutting edge of the latest attack trends, rather than relying on a DIY social engineering approach alone.
