Social Engineering Testing Services
The biggest initial security threat to your systems are the people using them. We expose human-related risks to help you instill a positive and thriving security culture, where genuine social engineering attacks can be more easily identified.
The benefits of social engineering testing and attack simulation
Social engineering attacks often exploit common human traits, such as curiosity, fear or the desire to help others, so as a result can be challenging to detect. But, with our experience, it’s a challenge we can help you overcome.
Through regular and realistic social engineering testing services and attack simulations, we’re able to guide and educate your people in best practice, so they’re prepared to defend against genuine social engineering attacks.
- Assess your human risks
- Shape policies and procedures
- Educate your workforce
- Drive awareness
- Inspire a positive security culture
- Regular testing to maintain security
The weakest link in your security
Targeting your workforce via social engineering is often the first step a threat actor will take when looking to breach your security, whether via a phishing email, impersonation attack, curated pretexting or social media mining.
Ensuring your people are ready and capable of recognizing a social engineering attack will prevent them from revealing confidential information, installing malware or granting unauthorized access to a system.
SHEEP in a wolf’s clothing
Too few organizations value their teams’ proficiency in detecting psychological manipulation, deception and impersonation. These are the techniques employed by our team of ethical hackers to imitate genuine bad actors so convincingly. Certainly far more convincingly than any sharp-suited pentest or red team consultant.
With dozens of fully accredited ethical hackers across the globe, and from all walks of life, we deliver simulated social engineering attacks in many languages, taking into account cultural differences.
The fine art of deception
Social engineering attacks can take many forms. And our expert team is well versed in all of them, bringing into play a hugely diverse set of skills to subvert their targets’ better judgment.
Their collective expertise has helped us become one of the few cyber vendors in the world fully accredited by CREST (Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers) for Simulated Targeted Attack and Response.
Constant cyber attack via subscription
STOP TESTING. START ATTACKING.
Just as your security defenses must evolve to keep pace with organizational change, so must your approach to cyber attack.
With most security breaches occurring many days prior to detection, effective simulated attacks must be constant. It’s the only way to counteract an APT and avoid zero-day exploits.
NO PATCH FOR HUMAN ERROR
It’s not just your systems and applications which are susceptible to threat. Your people are too. Staff members are one of the most common breach points for successful cyber attacks.
REAL ATTACKERS DON’T REST. neither do we.
Cyber attacks are a constant threat. This is why testing on a six or twelve month cycle is no longer enough. Our subscription-based approach means the value delivered by our constant red team assault on your organization will be non-stop.
Via our Offensive Operations Center you’ll have complete control over which areas of your business are attacked. We’ll respect boundaries and never place your systems in any genuine danger. But, just like a real attacker, we can’t promise we’ll always play by the traditional rules of testing.
CovertSwarm subscription includes:
- Constant cyber attack insights delivery
