Conduct ethical social engineering tests to identify an organization's susceptibility to attack. Written by a global expert on the topic, Social Engineering in IT Security discusses the roots and rise of social engineering and presents a proven methodology for planning a test, performing reconnaissance, developing scenarios, implementing the test, and accurately reporting the results.

  • Create a credible social engineering scenario
  • Execute both on-site and remote social engineering tests
  • Write an effective social engineering report
