Social engineering is certainly not a new problem. But it's a persistent one that continues to grow, and with seemingly no end in sight because it preys on a natural human tendency to trust.
While most financial institutions have taken significant steps to combat social engineering through user education and additional controls for their customers, they still find themselves struggling to identify new attack methods and mitigate the damage.
To arm you for the battle, VASCO put together this Social Engineering E-Book designed to help you better understand:
- How you'll be attacked - and what else the hackers have in their bag of tricks;
- Who is being targeted - In Q1 of 2015, over 37% attacks were targeted at financial institutions;
- How you can gain more control - and what technologies are available to protect you.
