What is a Social Engineering Attack?

 Most of the Cyber Attacks happening around the globe are due to Social Engineering Attacks.

  • What is a Social Engineering Attack?

It is a Non-Technical Attack using Psychology and Trickery. It does not involve technical offensive cyber weaponry. A classical example is when someone pretending to be calling from IT Support tricking a Non-Technical User such as a Receptionist of an Accounts/HR Officer, telling them of their password has expired and needed to give a new one. During their conversation, the impersonated IT Officer might ask for the old password and ask them if they want to retain that. In most cases Non-Technical Employees without realizing, they will disclose their current password. That same can then be used to launch further cyber attacks.

  • What can one do to defend against Social Engineering Attack?

The key remains in having a Cyber-Vigilant workforce. Cybersecurity Workshops and Training for Non-Technical Workforce is a must and must be part of Workplace Training and Development.

Cyber Security is no longer an IT or OT Issue. It is a C-Suite and Boardroom issues and must be driven from the top.

Cyber Security is a shared responsibility and we believe together we can collaborate to defend PNG's Cyber Ecosystems in areas such as:

1. Cybersecurity Workforce Training and Workshops for Non-Technical Users as human beings still remain the number-one security loophole or gap where cybercriminals can get access to your cyber-ecosystem.

2. Cybersecurity Workplace Policy and Framework Developments

3. Ethical Hacking Services such as Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment.

4. Security Orchestrations Automation & Response (SOAR) as well as Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) among others.
