InfoSec Shorts With Brad – Why Social Engineering is Important for Your Business
In this episode of “InfoSec Shorts with Brad” we’re diving into social engineering. Hands down one of the largest vulnerabilities your business faces comes from employees. Often well-meaning people, trying to be helpful or simply lacking the understanding of security procedures, are often manipulated and exploited by hackers every day.
We commonly test company employees through various methods and find a 90% success rate in obtaining sensitive information as a result. This information is typically then used to further exploit the company and obtain control over the network, websites, and critical information.
At Raxis, we like to say, “You can’t fix what you don’t know is broken”. That’s why it’s so important to continually assess your people. With each assessment, you’ll learn more about where your people are and how to better train them in your continual effort to improve in warding off social engineering attacks.
