An Attractive Tool
Explain different factors that make social engineering an effective attack vector.
For this assignment, please prepare an 8-10 PowerPoint slide presentation that could be presented during a lunch knowledge transfer session workshop. Building on our discussion topic, why has social engineering become so attractive to the adversary?
As you research this consider:
- We have firewalls, anti-virus, anti-malware, and all of our systems are patched, why do these attacks continue to work so well?
- What is the psychology behind a social engineering attack?
- What type of research is necessary to perform such attacks?
*Include a cover slide, introductory slide, conclusion slide, and references slide. All of these slides will not count in your required total of slides.
A reminder about graduate-level learning:
Graduate-level student learning will involve more of a focus on “diving in deeper” to the content. Expanding on the initial topic includes both written and oral presentation on the field of study experience, in combination with independent research and course content, will be essential elements of your graduate studies.
To have an experience isn’t enough to establish learning – you need to intentionally and thoughtfully reflect upon the experience, considering what you learned from it in order to take something away from it!
