Requests for information via fax is a crucial of exchanging information and sometimes these faxes contain sensitive information. Too often these exchanges of information happen without fully authenticating or authorizing the requesting
party. Fax social engineering aims to identify weaknesses in how faxes are managed and exchanged within an organization
During a physical social engineering engagement, Rhymetec engages staff directly (overt) or indirectly (covert) in an effort to identify weaknesses in the way they physically handle visitors and those pretending to be employees, vendors
or business partners. Rhymetec consultants masquerade as vendors, new employees, business partners and even employee family members in order to entice staff into divulging sensitive information or permitting access to sensitive
areas of the facility.
