Social Recruiting: a Next Generation Social Engineering Attack

ABSTRACT

Social engineering attacks initially experienced success due to the lack of understanding of the attack vector and resultant lack of remedial actions. Due to an increase in media coverage corporate bodies have begun to defend their interests from this vector. This has resulted in a new generation of social engineering attacks that have adapted to the industry response. These new forms of attack take into account the increased likelihood that they will be detected; rendering traditional defences against social engineering attacks moot. This paper highlights these attacks and will explain why traditional defences fail to address them as well as suggest new methods of incident response.
