Technique of Social Engineering Prevention


Social Engineering Prevention

The most effective way to prevent damage from social engineering attacks is to educate users. User must be able to recognize and respond to these attacks properly.

  • Users should not automatically believe everything they see, hear, or read, particularly on the Internet.
  • Organizations should implement security policies and train users to follow them.
  • Users should report possible attacks.
  • Users should not give out passwords over the phone or in email.
  • Users should not comply with phone or email requests for personal or company information or access to company resources.
  • Users should transfer phone callers who make unusual requests to a system operator.
  • And, above all, users must employ common sense. If anything sounds forced, too good to be true, or otherwise unusual, it is best to err on the side of caution.
