As email security filters continue to evolve and improve, attackers are moving from email-based phishing to other social engineering methods, such as SMS, phone, in-person impersonation, media drops, etc. These non-email based forms of social engineering rarely have the security solutions in place to monitor and block malicious messages and attacks, which is an advantage for the attacker.
The Social Engineering Assessment could include everything from the Phishing Assessment service (email-based social engineering), but it could also include a custom-tailored combination of SMS (i.e. smishing), phone (i.e. vishing), in-person impersonation (i.e. physical social engineering), baiting (ex. USB drops), social media, mailed letters/packages, etc. The details of the assessment are tailored to your specific needs and risk profile.
