Social Engineering Penetration Testing

Social Engineering Penetration Testing

“Social engineers” are cyber criminals that use psychological manipulation to gain access to protected information. Our experts use simulated attacks to determine your organization’s current state of readiness for social threats.

Fix Your Organization’s Greatest Security Weakness

“Social engineers” employ a wide range of psychological manipulation tactics to gain access to protected information or systems. Most people have a variety of “human elements” that can easily be preyed upon by cyber criminals—including kindness, empathy, and a desire to be helpful—to obtain access to your critical assets and data.

Our Approach

To prepare your users for social threats, proper training is essential. Our social engineering assessment provides a baseline for companies who want to understand their current state of readiness and potential vulnerabilities when it comes to detecting and eliminating social engineering threats.

What’s Covered in Our Comprehensive Assessment

MegaplanIT’s penetration testing specialists use targeted social engineering tactics to identify your organization’s weak points and highlight opportunities to “shut the door” on social scammers.


Email Phishing is a scam intended to steal credentials, such as usernames and passwords. Smishing has the same goal, but it is run through SMS (texting) technology.


MegaplanIT will test how your employees handle a telephone call from a "social engineer" trying to obtain unauthorized information.


Social engineers may pretend to be a service technician to obtain access to your servers. MegaplanIT works to identify high-risk areas and test all security options.


A Social Engineering Assessment will direct the focus of your ongoing security awareness training program to the departments that pose the greatest risk.


MegaplanIT will review your current IT security policies and technical controls to determine if any areas provide opportunities for social engineers, such as a lack of ID authentication.


After the technical control assessment, MegaplanIT will provide detailed remediation options to resolve all documented network vulnerabilities.
