Social Engineering In Evolution Of Attacks

The aim of this eBook is to present the evolution of modern social engineering and to discuss its relationship with modern cybercrime and cyberterrorism trends. The best way to open such document is to report a classic definition of Social Engineering (SE onward in the document), to better underline the difference between what is commonly perceived as SE and what is the current state of this “art”. There are many different definitions of SE, but the following is interesting because it is classic and belongs to the so-called old-school SE.

Social Engineering (SE), in the context of information security, refers to psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information.

A type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs from a traditional "con" in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme.

The term "social engineering" as an act of psychological manipulation is also associated with the social sciences, but its usage has caught on among computer and information security professional.

Traditionally, the world of Systems Security mostly focuses on technological threats coming from the compromised technological systems.

Nonetheless, an information system is not composed merely by a technological factor, but also by the “human” factor.  When dealing with Information Security the “human” factor refers to the often forgotten user who plays an important role in a cyberattack.
