A social engineering assessment is all about evaluating the security of your people by attempting to lure them into taking some unsafe action or divulging sensitive information. Admittedly, this type of assessment is entrenched in deception, but unfortunately, that is one of the favorite tools used by some of the world’s most notorious hackers. Just think about it this way, is it easier to break into a network and bypass the intrusion detection system or simply convince an employee to give you their password so that you can fix their computer? People are often the weakest link in any security strategy and a social engineering assessment is a great way to verify the security consciousness of your team.
