Physical Security Testing and Social Engineering Services
Protect your assets
Physical security controls often have technical weaknesses that can be easily exploited with basic tools. These controls may also suffer due to poor security awareness and the natural human tendency to accept people at their word, leading to social engineering attacks where a malicious individual persuades well-meaning employees to volunteer information.
Social Engineering Testing Methods
- Physical Assessment and Testing: Secure128 experts work collaboratively with clients to assess the physical security of a building, facility or campus. Our proprietary methodology calculates the risk a business faces, and then our experts identify and evaluate security system upgrades in order to reduce that risk.
- Client-side Penetration Testing: In executing this test, our experts use social engineering and other methods to bypass perimeter security, validating that staff are adhering to policies, general security awareness exists and key systems, such as SMTP/HTTP filtering and proxy services, are performing ideally.
- Business Intelligence Testing: Social networking, location aware services, mobile blogging and other technologies make it easy for people to exchange information, some of which can be sensitive to a business, putting its reputation or finances at risk. To find out what data exists publically and online, one of our expert researchers examines public resources and uses data mining tools to identify, for example, if a business' intellectual property is the subject of a Facebook status.
- Social Engineering Testing: A red team is a group of subject matter experts (SMEs) of various physical security disciplinary backgrounds who provide an independent review of plans and processes. The red team at SpiderLabs can act as both the adversary's advocate as well as knowledgeably role-play the client, using a controlled, realistic, interactive process.
Our experts review, assess and test physical security controls to ensure these controls are serving their intended purpose-keeping the intruders out.
