The best defense against the increasing threat of social engineering attacks is Security Awareness Training to warn your organization's staff of the risk and educate them on how to protect your organization's data.

Review:

"...a blueprint for creating a highly practical and effectiveness awareness programme that could do so much more to protect your organisation than tens of thousand of dollars spent on shiny new security hardware."--Network Security, Building an Information Security Awareness Program

"...a comprehensive introduction to the human factors that have an impact on the delivery of effective security, as well as practical proposals for the defense against social engineering and technical threats." -- Computing Reviews

"I have been reading about this subject for a while now and, in my modest opinion, this is one of the best books out there covering it... every chapter holds some additional, practical information about each topic." -- Help Net Security, October 16,2014
