Product Description

From the Back Cover

"Chris Hadnagy has penned the ultimate text on social engineering. Meticulously researched and teeming with practical applications, this brilliant book offers solutions to very real problems and ever-present dangers to your business — and even to yourself. Truly groundbreaking."
Kevin Hogan, author of The Science of Influence: How to Get Anyone to Say "Yes" in 8 Minutes or Less

Discover the secrets of expert con men and human hackers

No matter how sophisticated your security equipment and procedures may be, their most easily exploitable aspect is, and has always been, the human infrastructure. The skilled, malicious social engineer is a weapon, nearly impossible to defend against.

This book covers, in detail, the world's first framework for social engineering. It defines, explains, and dissects each principle, then illustrates it with true stories and case studies from masters such as Kevin Mitnick, renowned author of The Art of Deception. You will discover just what it takes to excel as a social engineer. Then you will know your enemy.

Tour the Dark World of Social Engineering

  • Learn the psychological principles employed by social engineers and how they're used

  • Discover persuasion secrets that social engineers know well

  • See how the crafty crook takes advantage of cameras, GPS devices, and caller ID

  • Find out what information is, unbelievably, available online

  • Study real-world social engineering exploits step by step

"Most malware and client-side attacks have a social engineering component to deceive the user into letting the bad guys in. You can patch technical vulnerabilities as they evolve, but there is no patch for stupidity, or rather gullibility. Chris will show you how it's done by revealing the social engineering vectors used by today's intruders. His book will help you gain better insight on how to recognize these types of attacks."
Kevin Mitnick, Author, Speaker, and Consultant

Format: Paperback
This book dissects in detail how social engineers think, plan, and act. Examples show how through creativity, it's possible to gain access to seemingly unbreakable systems.

I highly recommend this book to anyone working in the IT sector.

This is a great book that is meaty but not difficult to read. I found the style of writing to be very accessible without compromising the quality of the material.

This book really should be required reading for all senior and mid-level corporate executives. It would save them a lot of money and time if they did so. I also think that it should be mandatory reading for most high school students!
