We Detect Social Engineering Based Attacks and Stop Them

Cybercriminals often find more success using people’s psychological biases against them than trying to hack into a business system directly. That’s why social engineering attacks are such a big problem. With social engineering, scams like phishing and impersonation are more believable. Employees give away company information and customers get their personal information stolen. The worst part is the attackers abuse your company’s reputation to get what they want. 

Social engineering preys on things like trust, authority, and opportunity. If someone believes they received a message on social media from the CEO, they are likely to respond favorably and go deeper into the scam. Likewise, if they receive an email from an executive containing a link to a phishing site, they are more likely to click on the link. Some attackers even pose as recruiters for well-known companies on LinkedIn to scam job searchers. 

Attackers can target your own employees, your customers, or the general public. They often use your trademarks and media assets to appear legitimate. Of course, attackers try to hide all this from your business. That’s why it’s important to have a high-level monitoring system that scans the net for risks. 

BrandShield’s technology monitors the web and social media sphere 24/7 for unauthorized use of your trademarks, content, and images. If an attacker sets up a fake Facebook account, we’ll detect it and take it down before it can do any damage. The same goes for a spoofed domain based on your company. Threats are organized in a dashboard for you to track enforcement progress. Sign up for a demo to see how BrandShield can protect your company from social engineering attacks.
