BugSec’s Social Engineering service test your organization’s susceptibility to Social Engineering techniques by various ways in order to target employees. The goal of the engagement is to help an organization understand and improve upon its present security posture. Social Engineering relies on a set of technological, psychological, and physical techniques that trick a user into breaking security protocols.

Social engineering scenarios can include but off course not limited to Phishing email, phone calls, covert entering to organization premises, face to face conversation and entering as a legitimate employee while new techniques updating constantly.

BugSec performs these projects, both remotely as well as on customer premises and our experts, after having done their research, will find ways to gain access to the information. The results of such a project are evidence such as pictures, phone records, screen shots, movies, etc. of what has been done in order to get to the information. All these elements are then handed over to the customer and this enables him to create awareness and procedure amongst its personnel to avoid a real attack.


RELATED SERVICES



BugSec is considered one of the leading audit and consultancy companies in the field of cyber security.
In order for BugSec to be able to stay at the forefront of the cyber security industry, we need to guarantee the highest possible level of our personnel, whether they work inside BugSec’s offices or on customer premise.
BugSec’s team of experts perform Social Engineering projects for various customers in Israel and around the world.
For Social Engineering, we use psychological manipulation of people in order for them to give us entry into their organization and/or to have them divulge sensitive information about the organization or its customers.
If a real hacker would do this, he could then use this information against the organization for his own purposes or request a ransomware to be paid so that the information would not be made public.
Social Engineering uses various techniques to make the employees of the customer feel at-ease with you so that they will believe the things you say or claim to be.
The most common form of social engineering is to make phone calls, claiming that you are someone else and that you need certain information to be given to you.
Another way of extracting information, is to enter the customer’s premises, while making them believe you’re one of them. This way they will let you enter and will divulge the requested information to you or give you access to the sensitive information.
Once you’re inside the company, it is very easy to plug a USB stick, with a virus or anything else, inside a pc and thus hack into the organization.
Once people feel confident that you’re who you claim to be, and they are not aware of the dangers and techniques of social engineering, they will very easily give you access to everything you request.
