Social Engineering Services

Social engineering involves gaining sensitive information or unauthorized access privileges by building inappropriate trust relationships with insiders to commit fraud, network intrusion, industrial espionage, identity theft, or simply to disrupt the system or network. Social Engineering is the art of manipulating people into speaking/acting contrary to their normal manner.

There are many attack vectors that Packet Security might leverage. These attack vectors are based on human vulnerabilities and may include:
