Social Engineering for Penetration Testing

Unsure about your social engineering risk? Run a specialized pen test, powered by SocialProof Security, to assess your risk.


Social Engineering is a constant threat

Social Engineering is among the most common attack vectors, but many organizations are unsure how they would fare in an actual social engineering attack scenario. Running a specialized pen test is the only way to assess how your org will respond to common, real-world, human-based threats. It’s also the recommended follow-up to our Social Engineering prevention training and workshops in order to validate their impact.



The Social Engineering Pen Test methodology can include phone, email, social media, chat/SMS, and account takeover to cover desired attack pathways.



An industry leader in Social Engineering, SocialProof Security will employ all the classic, as well as the latest, techniques to accurately assess risk.



By stressing your defenses, the Social Engineering Pen Test validates that previous training and protocol updates are working.



SocialProof Security will compile a full report and list of top mitigation recommendations to limit social engineering risk.

Jim Daly, CIO, Diamond Credit Union
We’ve received some very interesting and unexpected traffic from a variety of researchers, and I think that kind of testing exercises our product more thoroughly than would be possible.
William Scalf, Security Architect, Softdocs
