Social Engineering is a technique that relies on exploiting weaknesses in human nature, rather than hardware, software, or network vulnerabilities.
RedTeam Security offers four core Social Engineering areas to test human susceptibility to persuasion and manipulation:
- Email Phishing
- Onsite/Physical Pretexting
RedTeam is highly skilled at conducting Social engineering tests and has publicly released tools and published a book (The Social Engineer’s Playbook: A Practical Guide to Pretexting) to improve the process. We frequently conduct these assessments for clients and have a very high success rate of compromise as well as eliciting sensitive or confidential information.
Recently, correspondents and a film crew from Business Insider / Tech Insider wrote a story on their experience as they were embedded with RedTeam Security during some of our Social Engineering engagements.

The Social Engineer’s Playbook: A Practical Guide to Pretexting
The Social Engineer’s Playbook was written by RedTeam Security’s founder, Jeremiah Talamantes. The Social Engineer’s Playbook is a practical guide to pretexting and a collection of social engineering pretexts for Hackers, Social Engineers and Security Analysts. Build effective social engineering plans using the techniques, tools and expert guidance in this book. Learn valuable elicitation techniques, such as: Bracketing, Artificial Ignorance, Flattery, Sounding Board and others.
