Social engineering is a security threat. In simple words, it is the art of manipulating, tricking, or deceiving you to disclose confidential information so as to gain control over your computer. Criminals might try to establish direct contact over phone or email to gain illegal access to your system and breach your sensitive information. Despite following stringent IT security standards to secure your cloud deployments, data center, and infrastructure, you could become a victim of social engineering. At Pinnacle, you can expect the best social engineering prevention in Dubai.

Social Engineering Risk & Prevention Tips

Social engineering is one of the cleverest ways for a hacker to “get inside” your organization. They may trust an employee’s password to gain access to your company and sensitive data. Psychological manipulation is one of the most common tactics employed by fraudsters to trick people into divulging confidential details. Hackers may create emails and web pages similar to those of your company to trick individuals into clicking malicious links or attachments or even sharing personal details. This can undoubtedly transform into significant financial losses, loss of customer trust and loyalty, and reputation loss.

Awareness is the best defensive measure as far as social engineering security is concerned, given the intensity at which such tricks are evolving. It is critically important to raise awareness among employees from top to bottom about cyber security threats.

  • Training must be kept fresh and updated. Make sure there is a comprehensive security awareness training program to address all forms of cyber attacks. User education is critically important to preventing social engineering UAE fraud.
  • Review existing security policies and procedures to test vulnerabilities.
  • Consider separation of duties for key financial and other transactions to outside entities.
