Social Engineering

The act of obtaining or attempting to obtain otherwise secured information by ‘conning’ an individual into revealing the secure information. Social engineering is successful because its victims innately want to trust other people and are naturally helpful. The victims of social engineering are tricked into releasing information that they do not realize will be used to attack a computer network. For example, an employee in an enterprise may be tricked into revealing his User ID and Password to someone who is pretending to be someone from IT support team. The social engineer can use that information in conjunction with other information that has been gathered to get closer to finding a way into the enterprise’s network.
Phishing is a type of security attack that relies on social engineering in that it lures the victim into revealing information based on the human tendency to believe in the security of a brand name because they associate the brand name with trustworthiness.

Virus and Spyware

This is the most common threat facing us today. Virus, spy ware, Trojans and worms can do varying degrees of damage depending on their type. Customer should have up-to-date Antivirus and Anti spyware software installed and enabled on their PC all the time.

Identity Theft

Identity theft is a crime in which someone wrongfully obtains access to your personal information and uses it in a way that involves fraud or deception, usually for economic gain. Unfortunately, most identify theft victims don’t realize they’ve been targeted until the damage has been done; resulting in unknown charges or withdrawals to company accounts, or calls from collection agencies among other consequences.
Identity theft is the deliberate assumption of another person's identity, usually to gain access to their finances or frame them for a crime.


Keep your password confidential and change it frequently. We would advise you, for your own security, not to use common information such as your birthday, telephone number or a recognizable part of your name as your password.
