Social engineering is a form of hacking that exploits people and human behavior. It's a collective term for attacks where someone is manipulated into providing information, clicking on a link, installing malicious software, etc.
Why social engineering?
People play a crucial role in security. Just as penetration testing aims to test technical systems, a Social Engineering attack focuses on testing human behavior and organizational procedures. In this way, Social Engineering serves as a benchmark to assess how resilient your organization is against such attacks.
What is the process of social engineering?
Together, we map out which behavior and/or procedure needs to be tested, and we determine the most suitable testing method for that. Additionally, at The S-Unit, it's possible to perform security awareness interventions that align with the test.
