"OUCH! is out – Social Engineering"

The November edition of OUCH! is out. For this month we focus on the fundamental concepts of Social Engineering. Time and time again we have found ourselves referencing Social Engineering in past editions of OUCH, so it was time to take a step back and explain exactly what Social Engineering is and how to detect and stop it. Ultimately our goal is to reinforce the idea that people and not technology are the best defense. Please feel free to share OUCH with your family, friends and coworkers. As always, you can find OUCH! in over 25 languages and past archives at the OUCH home page – www.securingthehuman.org/ouch.
