EDUCATION AND AWARENESS FROM COMPUTER CARE

Social engineering exploits weaknesses in your staff to divulge secure information. Our education and awareness service reduces the threat by:

• Teaching your staff about the tactics used to exploit them
• Carrying out social engineering attacks to test staff response
• Targeting your staff with phishing exercises to test protocols

WHY DO I NEED EDUCATION AND AWARENESS TESTING?

No matter how secure your IT is, the chain will break if there is a weakness in your staff that can be exploited to gather key security information or carry out criminal activities. Through misplaced trust, ignorance, fear, moral obligation or greed, employees can be convinced to carry out actions that can severely compromise your IT security. By replicating the sort of approaches that criminals will use to penetrate your organisation, we can identify vulnerabilities in your workforce and help you to plug the gaps before it’s too late.

HOW DOES EDUCATION AND AWARENESS TESTING WORK?

We will target your staff with generic phishing emails and more targeted spear and whale phishing exercises, to see if we can trick them into revealing secure information and even authorising payments. We will inspect the security culture in the office, testing for adherence to policy and common sense. We will try various approaches to exploit the weaknesses mentioned above and will report back with our findings, setting out any vulnerabilities that we find and offering potential resolutions. We can run through the report with you if you require further verification.
