Social engineering represents one of the most prevalent attack vectors for malicious actors. It is far easier and less time consuming for a criminal to prey on the emotions and trust of an end user as opposed to searching for and exploiting a technical vulnerability within an organization’s systems. These tactics are constantly evolving to reach your employees via all forms of technology, as well as physical security exploits.
The key to remediating these risks is a robust and continuous program to include security awareness training and simulated attacks with reporting to identify users who need additional training. Proactively monitoring the dark web for organizational data and credentials will also give your team the upper hand to take action immediately should a breach have occurred. Compass IT Compliance's suite of social engineering and awareness services empower your organization to foster a culture of security awareness and strengthen your most valuable asset: your people.
