Social engineering

Social engineering is one of the most commonly used techniques by hackers. The best protection against this is high awareness among individual employees within your organization. Using practical training and social engineering simulations, our Spotit specialists make your employees more aware of this form of scam.

How do we work?

  1. During a kick-off meeting, we look at the needs within your organisation and teams.
  2. We work out a concrete plan fully tailored to your needs.
  3. This long-term plan includes various training courses, tests and campaigns.
  4. An interim evaluation may lead to an adjustment of the plan.
  5. After completion, we evaluate the results and the increased awareness of your employees.

Why is this a priority?

Social engineers are criminals who carry out phishing attacks, attempt to get passwords out of your employees, attack your environment in different ways and look for your sensitive data. Often, your technology is sufficiently prepared for this, but your employees are the weakest link. They open phishing e-mails, pass on sensitive data, or handle passwords carelessly. Of course, this happens unintentionally or out of ignorance and insufficient knowledge. Using social engineering training and simulations, spotit can provide help and support.  

Is your organization in line with the new NIS2 directive?

We expect the Belgian transposition of the EU directive by 17/10/2024. Make sure your environment is completely secure to avoid fines!
