Publisher's Summary

Should that delivery man be walking around the office unattended? Has someone just asked you to hold the door, and you don't recognize them? Do you trust that person trying to befriend you in the bar next to the office? 

These are all potential social-engineering plays against you by professional criminals. 

Social engineering is one of the biggest threats to our organizations today. Social engineers use manipulation techniques to coerce people into revealing secrets about our companies to allow attackers to gain access to critical systems. 

In this audiobook, we will look at some of the techniques used in social engineering and look at how to guard yourself against them. We will cover subjects like: 

  • Information gathering 
  • Pretexting 
  • Elicitation 
  • Manipulation 
  • Personal mitigation techniques 
  • Corporate mitigation techniques
