Social Engineering-Even the best tools can’t help you with this security vulnerability

Posted by

At WLANmall we help clients with both physical and network security. Our business around helping our clients not only secure their networks, but secure their physical premises has doubled over the last year. As you would expect, we are always on the look-out for new, sophisticated solutions that help our clients integrate network and physical security-- making them easier to manage while ensuring that both your network and physical premises are safe and secure.

But today’s hackers and criminals have found another way in to your networks that even your best network solution providers can’t help you with—criminal activity through social engineering. Social engineering, in the context of information security, refers to psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. To prevent hacks and break-ins in your organization, the prevention starts with education—of both you and your employees. We thought this was a really interesting article to share with all of you: How I Socially Engineer Myself Into High Security Facilities.
