Reinforce the chain
Employees are the first line of defense against social engineering schemes. It’s imperative that management provide them adequate tools to combat would-be scammers, including:
The most advanced firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and video surveillance can’t offer much protection against social engineers who use unsuspecting employees to breach security and access sensitive information.
The best defense is well-trained and well-equipped employees who understand their role in protecting the interests of the organization.
Management must provide staff with the training, guidance, and tools to effectively combat this growing threat.
