When you picture a hacker, is it, someone, in a hoodie halfway around the world in a dimly lit room, hunched over a keyboard? What if we were to tell you that hackers can be more insidious than that? Hackers can gain physical access to a facility through multiple means, which can then give them increased access to hacking the network. This can be anything from talking their way into the building to breaking in.

As you go through your day always keep an eye out for:
• People in the office you don’t recognize
• Someone trying to convince you they’re supposed to be there that you can’t verify
• People tailgating through a door behind you or a coworker
• Doors propped open
• Doors that don’t close all the way or aren’t locking

An electric company tasked a security company with simulating attackers by breaking in and hacking their network as part of what is known as a “red team” engagement. The footage can be seen at the link below:
