Description - The Art of Deception by Kevin D. Mitnick
Truly, the greatest vulnerability in protecting the business assets of any company often lies with the company?s own employees. Although corporations go to great lengths to install state of the art systems, they continue to ignore the human element of information security. Without proper training and security procedures, employees are highly susceptible to what are called ?social engineering? attacks that lead them to unwittingly open doors within the organization, both in the literal sense and the information technology sense. The author, Kevin Mitnick, is arguably the world?s most infamous hacker who has turned his life around and now is much sought after by industry and corporations worldwide as the expert on preventing security breaches. There is no one on the planet who has more experience with ?social engineering? techniques, and no one who is better able to advise on how these kind of attacks are carried out and can be prevented.
