Providing Confidence In Security

Working alongside Cyber Security professionals & Social Engineers providing a three dimensional assessment of an organisations  security systems, protocols and culture.

About

Eclectic Security is a team of former military professionals specialising in physical security infiltration (penetration) tests. 

Techniques used by professional criminals such as lock picking, bypassing, (Open Source Intelligence) OSINT gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance are used to identify vulnerabilities in a physical security system. Recommendations and training on mitigating any areas of concern are carried out, before an attacker has chance to exploit any weaknesses. 

Working in partnership with colleagues in cyber security and social engineering, we can provide a complete and thorough assessment of a clients physical, digital and human security systems. Together with any business protocols and culture, we give a completely three dimensional security assessment.

What is a Physical Security Infiltration (Penetration) Test?​

Organisations often overlook the physical security of their businesses, instead focusing on cyber security. Large amounts of resources are spent verifying their  network is secure from vulnerabilities.  Investment is usually in the form of firewalls and intrusion prevention systems, which are important but are ineffective if an attacker can walk into the building and steal the data from an unlocked terminal, or place a USB stick with malware onto a terminal. 

An organisation also has to protect its people, assets and property, however it is short-sighted to have security measures such as access control systems, responsive alarm monitoring and security guards if they are not being used correctly. Our physical security infiltration (penetration) test is designed to find and exploit the vulnerabilities within an organisations’ physical controls and barriers. 

Tests may include:

  • Surveillance and monitoring: Looking for vulnerabilities in the manned guard or the culture of the organisation. 
  • Infiltration teams: Looking for flaws in the organisations’ security systems such as mechanical locks,  access control systems, CCTV, alarms and doors. 
  • Social engineers: Looking for human behavioural weakness that may impact on security breaches. 
  • Cyber penetration testers: Looking for vulnerabilities in IT security. 

All tests are designed to discover any weaknesses within an organisation which could be exploited by an attacker for malicious purposes. They will be carried out at strategic times of the day and night.

 

Eclectic Security Infiltration Team (ESIT)

Eclectics physical security Infiltration testing is carried out by our team of handpicked specialists which we call ESIT (Eclectic Security Infiltration Team)  We work alongside Cyber penetration testers but our areas of expertise differ considerably and so we differentiate ourselves so as not to cause confusion by using the term Infiltration instead of Penetration.

ESIT is made up of a team of experts in different fields such as surveillance, professional lock-pickers and security system bypass experts , access control, alarm and CCTV technicians, covert op specialists, reconnaissance experts to name a few, each team member has been handpicked for their skills and experience and most have former military or police backgrounds.

We work very closely with professional Social engineers who are experts in the field of human hacking giving us and them an added tool when carrying out a test together.

Our Partners

Social engineers

 Social Engineering is the manipulation of a person or persons through psychological or non-technical means, in order to gain access to finance, data, information or even physical access to premises or goods.  It’s a “people hack” because it uses human beings rather than technology as the basis for an attack.

 Cyber penetration testers

A cyber penetration test, also known as a pen test, is an authorised simulated attack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system. The test is performed to identify both weaknesses (also referred to as vulnerabilities), including the potential for unauthorised parties to gain access to the system’s features and data, as well as strengths, enabling a full risk assessment to be completed.

Our Approach

 

Eclectic security provide a bespoke service to each client, we understand that each organisation is different and has its own particular security needs, systems, procedures and concerns this is why our team of experts will work with you before a test so we can understand your concerns, your culture and what it is you are wanting to achieve from a test. From this initial consultation our team will tailor a physical penetration test fully and personally designed for your organisation to see which vulnerabilities we can expose in your Security.

On completion of any test we will provide a full report highlighting areas of concern within your organisations physical security, from this we will work with you giving recommendations on how these vulnerabilities can be addressed, we will offer educational briefs to your team on how they can implement changes to increase security and we can provide full installations or upgrades of current security systems such as electronic access control, CCTV, alarms and mechanical locks if these are found to be inadequate during the test.

ESIT can work independently to simply test your physical security but we also partner with some leading experts in Social engineering and cyber penetration testing for those clients who would like a complete and comprehensive test of their entire organisation’s security systems, protocols, counter-measures and culture.
