Humans are the weakest link in the cyber security chain when it comes to being targeted. Social engineering has been a largely successful attack vector for cyber criminals and threat actors alike. In the last few years, every major cyber incident has had a human at the heart of it; attack vectors such as phishing, spear phishing, vishing, and pretexting come to mind.

It is of the utmost importance that the employees understand cyber hygiene and common tactics deployed by malicious actors to lower the risk of being social engineered.

Risks And Issues You Face Without Security Awareness Training

In the absence of proper cybersecurity training, you are literally opening the doors for cyber attacks. Staff training in cybersecurity is essential to lowering the risks and burdens on your business. Without adequate personnel security training, your company may be vulnerable to online attacks.

It is of the utmost importance that the employees understand cyber hygiene and common tactics deployed by malicious actors to lower the risk of being social engineered.


Our security experts will monitor the web app and analyse patterns of attacks with regular scanning to take precise steps to avoid any data breach.

Don’t Postpone Web Application Penetration Testing for Tomorrow

  • Physical entry

    Attempting to gain unauthorised access to buildings

  • Phishing campaigns

    Phishing and spear phishing techniques to trick users via email

  • Baiting

    Tempting users into disruptive actions that threaten security

  • Impersonating

    Impersonating members of staff to obtain information or access

  • Watering hole attacks

    Used to target members of a particular group

  • Dumpster diving

    Your trash may lead to direct network compromise or provide leverage

What Are Social Engineering Engagements

All attacks that seek to influence human behaviour to obtain an advantage or inside information about a target are considered social engineering. Here are some typical examples of social engineering engagements

How to Mitigate Against Accidental Insider Threats?

The term “accidental insider” refers to someone whose actions unintentionally affect the organisation in a significant way. Phishing is the most typical example of this. Internal resources may unintentionally be subjected to a ransomware assault as a result of an employee clicking on a link.

Having the fundamentals of security in place is necessary to safeguard an organisation from insider threats. The fundamentals, however, must be viewed as crucial and susceptible to ongoing improvement.

Our Assessment Methdology

A holistic approach to perform penetration test that not only discovers security vulnerabilities, but also finding business logic vulnerabilities along with security checklists based on industry standards, including OWASP Top 10, PCI Compliance etc.

Define Scope

Before initiating an assessment, Dotsquares establishes a well-defined scope with the client. At this stage, we encourage open communication between our team and the client organization to lay a solid foundation for the upcoming assessment.


Information Gathering

Consultants at Dotsquares utilize a wide array of OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) methods and tools to accumulate extensive information about the target. This gathered data aids in comprehending the operational states of the organization, enabling us to accurately assess the risk as the engagement unfolds.



At this point, we gather our custom scripts and tools, along with other advanced methods for more sophisticated data collection. Dotsquares specialists meticulously validate all potential attack vectors. The information gathered during this phase lays the foundation for further exploitation in the subsequent stage.

In this phase, we kick-start a combination of manual and automated inspections to identify potential attack vectors and vulnerabilities. Following this, we carry out exploitation to offer proof-of-concepts. We employ a variety of techniques, including open-source and bespoke tools during this stage. All these procedures are executed meticulously to avoid any disruption to your business operations.
