Social Engineering

Having implemented as an entrepreneur all technically possible and required measures to protect both your company-data and the company-know-how represented by your employees, still lets remain a significant risk which may emerge from -even your loyal (!)- staff. Where a system is well protected, humans are representing the weakest link in the chain concerning data secrecy in your company.

A “social engineer” (information gatherer) will make targeted use of the potential “weakness” of your company´s security system for his criminal plans by launching his attack on the interpersonal level. This proceeding, if though appearing trivial for its- non technical character- provides for a clever circumvention of highly sophisticated security measures.

By skillfully pretending a false truth, the social engineer without being noticed, gets himself access to the information of his interest to an extent, a mere intrusion-attempt via a computer would never be able to.

As the social engineer is dealing with human weakness, he knows how to win someone´s trust. He especially is aware of the fact that every human´s assumption is to not being a suitable subject to manipulation or pretense. Scraps of conversation without relevance of their own, which is unintentionally disclosed as it is appearing of no relevance for the individual, combined with targeted requests are enabling the social engineer to draft a full and informative picture of the company which is to be spied on.

Measures of prevention against social engineering, to experts´ statements, are clearly focusing the organizational sphere. A full-scope directive, usually in the shape of security-guideline, should define the required measures, which usually requires a position to be established within the company to draft and ongoing control the guideline and compliance with and to provide for the sensitization of staff. To simply appoint any employee the security officer for the sake of complying with the management´s liability obligations, would neither adequately consider the relevance nor the importance of this item and therefore would appear a neglecting of both the protection of the company and the company targets.
