We help companies assess the overall consciousness of their employees in information security matters. We’ll evaluate how good your employees are against creative personalized information phishing attacks aimed at exploiting trust or general lack of information security awareness in your staff.
By their very nature, social engineering attacks rely on ignorance as well as persuadable and unpredictable human elements in an organization to acquire critical information. Rather than use sophisticated penetrating software or hardware, the attacker targets natural human vulnerabilities among your staff to extract information. Social engineering attacks are successful because employees, who are not encrypted or coded in any way, end up making wrong emotional decisions and expose important information. At Venkon, we emulate the social engineering methods a malicious hacker would use to test the level of knowledge and preparedness your employees have against such attacks. The objective of our social engineering tests is to identify weaknesses and increase awareness among your staff.

How does Venkon run social engineering and phishing security tests?
- Emails deceptively designed to leave a malicious phishing code as soon as the receiver clicks a link or downloads an attachment.
- Telephone calls which sound believable enough to make your employee unknowingly divulge confidential information about the company to a stranger.
- Undetectable malware sent to a member of your staff in an innocently looking data storage device such as a USB stick drive or CDs. When the storage device is inserted into a computer or mobile device connected to your network, the hacker can remotely access sensitive company data unnoticed.
