Social Engineering

In the name of Lord Kevin Mitnick, the man who redefined Security.

You must be thinking that I’ve gone crazy but don’t think twice over it cause I feel it the same way. 😉 My obsession with Kevin goes long back when he was the most renowned outlaw and people had started Free Kevin Movement. I am obsessed with how simple it was for him to perform Social Engineering and even more amused with the way he could coauthor the books The Art of Deception and The Art of Intrusion in which he could explain the tricks in even simpler manner.

For those of you who don’t know what is Social Engineering, I’d put it in his own words: “Social Engineering uses influence and persuasion to deceive people by convincing them that the social engineer is someone he is not, or by manipulation. As a result, the social engineer is able to take advantage of people to obtain information with or without the use of technology.”

Welcome to next generation Security Threat Handling. In this series we will see as much of cons that can take place and how we should be dealing them.

Stay Tuned. Via la Security!
