Social engineering exercises identify the level of security in the single asset a bigger IT budget can’t help. The human.
Hundreds of billions of emails are sent every day. Almost certainly at some point you’ve received one of them, often spam, trying to entice you to act on it’s content. Similarly, phone calls are placed under various guises, sometimes strengthened by prior research in order to shroud the target in a false sense of security before trying to incite information from them.
Whatever the technique, should the attack be successful it could potentially result in the downloading of malware for further compromise, or the theft of personal data, money or intellectual property.
