Frequently asked questions

What is social engineering?

Social engineering is the biggest security risk to your organisation, as it directly targets the human beings who sit behind your technological defences. Bulletproof replicate the many techniques real-world threat actors have, including highly targeted phishing emails, phone/SMS impersonation and more.

Social engineering prevention can help you keep your staff protected against these devious attack vectors.

Do I need social engineering?

Humans are often the weakest link in the cyber security chain. Even the tightest technical controls can be overcome by an employee who's been tricked by a hacker. By testing your staff against social engineering, you can learn from the results, spot where the biggest weaknesses are and educate staff to significantly improve your cyber security.

How can I defend against social engineering attacks?

Conducting social engineering prevention allows you to uncover the weaknesses in your social engineering defences. Learning from the results of a social engineering campaign shows you where you need to focus your remediation efforts. Along with good policies and procedures, employee education is typically seen as the best defence against social engineering – making regular staff training a must-have for any organisation.

Why do hackers use social engineering?

Hackers know the fastest way to compromise your security is to exploit a human being who sits behind it. No matter what technological defences you have in-place to keep hackers out, if a cyber criminal can convince a member of staff to click a malicious link through a cleverly crafted email, all your defences are bypassed. This is what makes social engineering prevention services so vital.

What social engineering techniques do hackers use?

Some hackers will craft targeted, bespoke campaigns against you, whilst others will adopt a blanket approach to catch business who are less prepared. With so many different tactics and techniques available to cyber criminals, regular social engineering prevention is the best way to stay protected.
