Social Engineering Alabama

Social Engineering in Alabama Assessment & Physical Security Testing

Do you know that Social Engineering in Alabama is currently the ultimate con? Cyber criminals and hackers are knowledgeable and have the resources to easily penetrate and infiltrate systems with thefts, breaches, and more. They lie, convincingly, cheat, and steal their way past your organization's security controls, many times with very little trouble, unless you do not have the proper security.

Their goals: theft, fraud, malice, espionage, and more! What is your best line of defense: ensuring that your staff acquires the necessary knowledge, precautions, and possible responses. Everyday fraud incidents are on the rise - specifically in financial services and healthcare - and many of these crimes result from social engineers achieving deception in person, via the telephone, and/or through popular social networking sites.

Despite all the attention about the threats from hackers and viruses, the greatest threats to an organization's information security are actually the employees of the company! They are the people who, too often, too willingly, and too ignorantly and obliviously fall victim to Social Engineering in Alabama ploys, opening your company's doors wide open to slick-tongued fraudsters, theft, viruses, breaches, and much more.

When an intruder targets an organization for attack, be it for theft, fraud, economic espionage, or any other reason, the first step is reconnaissance. They need to learn as much information as they can about their target. The easiest way to conduct this task is by scamming employees, those who know the company best, for this information through slick, devious tactics. Their information gathering can range from simple phone calls to dumpster diving. It is not beneath a social engineer to use any and all the terrible tricks in the book to obtain their goals.

What can you do about social engineering attacks?
There are two ways of protecting yourself and your employees from falling victim to a social engineering scam. One is training your staff how to recognize and deter social engineers, as well as what information is considered private information. If you don’t dictate what is and isn’t important, it’s guaranteed that your important information will be passed off as common knowledge and leaked to a social engineer. Secondly, you should regularly test your staff to see if they are following security protocols or if they disclose private information.
