Boston Networks offers a solution to test how well the employees of a business are responding to these threats. Boston Networks uses is something called Security Awareness Training to help employees better recognize attacks.

One such method that our team uses is a cyber security tool called an email phishing campaign. An emailing phishing campaign is an email specifically crafted to look like a legitimate authentic email but in reality, this email is designed to simulate stealing the users password. If the user proceeds with the instructions of the email which would normally result in a compromised account, they are directed to take security awareness training to educate them on how to spot threats such as phishing emails. Our team can generate a report to see how well users have responded to these type of security tests.

Other time social engineering may be used to convince a user to open a malicious file, for example by sending an email with a “baby picture” that is actually a malicious file.
