The Leading Authority on Social Engineering
Kevin Mitnick’s method of social engineering penetration testing is the leading standard for the security industry. In his groundbreaking and bestselling work, The Art of Deception: Controlling the Human Element of Security, which is required reading by many organizations, including universities, Kevin explains that the easiest way to penetrate high-tech systems is through the people who manage, operate, and use them. In it, he demonstrates that humans are the weakest link in security. Therefore, the company he founded, Mitnick Security, uses his proprietary blend of information reconnaissance, technology, and personally mentored social engineers to provide unparalleled social engineering penetration testing through all attack vectors, including phone, web, e-mail, social media, and onsite infiltration.
Social Engineering attacks are the most serious cyber threat organizations face today. When you undergo Social Engineering Penetration Testing, you will learn how vulnerable you are to bad decisions, specifically regarding security best practices, which are normally widespread and are unaddressed on all levels of an organization. Many of your people will be easily convinced to unwittingly hand over the “keys to the kingdom.” Social engineering attacks are the most difficult to detect and defend against.
Mitnick Security’s groundbreaking social engineering penetration testing will help identify which people can be compromised and their level of susceptibility to social engineering attacks, and we are able to recommend or provide the training and inoculation exercises they should receive. Furthermore, we are able to put in place new (or adjust old) security policies to reflect the new realities of the threats that social engineering brings today. Mitnick Security recommends a recurring social engineering penetration testing program, not only to ensure that new security policies are enforced but also to keep your staff in a constant state of alertness.
