The largest growing threat to Network Security is Social Hacking or Social Engineering. Social Engineering Attacks cannot be stopped through security hardware and software. Only by being able to identify and properly react to the attacks can an organization and its users be protected. To this end, JSCM Group will perform two different Social Engineering Tests: Phishing and Vishing.

“Phishing” refers to a malicious attempt to gather information about an organization using emails to users on the network. Phishing attacks can cause significant damage to a network by exploiting social vulnerabilities to gather data on the organization’s confidential information.

An even bigger threat with phishing is a “Spear Phishing” attack.  With this tactic, an attacker will specifically target an individual or organization.  These attacks are even more dangerous, because the attacker will gather specific information about the individual or organization to make their attempt more believable.  These attacks can often go unnoticed, and can lead to significant loss of funds, or access into a network.

Nearly 1.5 million new phishing sites are created each month.

There are two primary methods that an attacker will use in a spear phishing attack.  The first is that they will try to get the target to give over sensitive information, like a password.  This would allow them to then try and access systems on the network.  The second is that they would try to get the user to click on a link.  This link could allow them to acquire specific information about the target, such as the computer they were using.  The link could also allow them to install malicious content or a tracking file onto the target’s computer.

To ensure that your network is safe from such an attack, we will simulate a spear phishing attack against your organization.  This will be a controlled test, and no personal information will be gathered.
