Social Engineering Methods for Penetration Testing - Social engineering is the practice of learning and obtaining valuable information by exploiting human vulnerabilities. It is an art of deception that is considered to be vital for a penetration tester when there is a lack of information about the target that can be exploited.
Putting Infosec Principles into Practice - When you’re dealing with a security incident it’s essential you – and the rest of your team – not only have the skills they need to comprehensively deal with an issue, but also have a framework to support them as they approach it. This framework means they can focus purely on what they need to do, following a process that removes any vulnerabilities and threats in a proper way – so everyone who depends upon the software you protect can be confident that it’s secure and functioning properly.
