Minimise your exposure to social engineering
While cyber security standards, technologies and methods have improved drastically over the last decade, social engineering remains persistently effective and inherently difficult to prevent. Trust-based cyber-attacks still pose the greatest threat to organisations, with 85% of organisations experiencing phishing and social engineering attacks accordingly to a recent cybercrime study by Ponemon Institute.
In contrast to traditional technology-based approaches to cyber-attacks, social engineering specifically targets the weakest link in the cyber security chain: people and their natural urge to trust others.
The Cyber Attack Surface Scanner (CASS) programme is developed to offer organisations a hacker’s view of their digital footprint. By identifying potential security risks on publicly available information and taking corrective actions in time, organisations can avoid falling victim to trust-based cyber-attacks.
Trust-based cyber-attacks are not only detrimental to your business, they can affect your customers as well. For example, phishing emails may be used to entice individual employees to click on malicious links that compromise their accounts or online credentials. This may lead to sabotage of networks, routers and other physical hardware, or even leakage of confidential customer details. With the preventive measures made possible by the CASS Programme, organisations can protect both their business and customers.
Designed for organisations of all sizes including Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), organisations with limited cyber security budgets as well as firms with large cyber security investments, the programme provides valuable statistical information with the interpretation and support of our highly skilled CASS experts.
The CASS Programme tackles the issue of trust-based attacks by achieving 2 primary objectives:
Completion of both objectives and implementations of recommended actions can greatly reduce the hackers’ capability to perform targeted social engineering, thereby minimising the exposure of your website as a target of opportunity.
