Social Engineering

While organizations strive to protect their sensitive data with firewalls and other security technologies, they underestimate the impact of the human factor when it comes to data protection. Cybercriminals focus on taking advantage of basic human behavior to gain access to your mission critical systems, applications and communication links. If your organization, system or network is attacked, the potential security breach followed by data theft could cause multidimensional damage to your entire organization.


Social Engineering describes a non-technical type of intrusion that relies heavily on human interaction. During a Social Engineering attack, perpetrators mislead a person, usually an authorized employee whose real identity was acquired, into performing actions that they should not. Perpetrators then use information collected through Social Engineering attacks to bypass normal security procedures or physical access controls and cause severe damage to your entire organization.
