Social Engineering for the Blue Team:

After I read, Chris Hadnagy’s book, Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking I realized that it’s more than just a red team activity. In fact Wikipedia has multiple entries on the topic. It’s not just security focused. It’s also political. Reading the book it’s even more than that. Sales and marketing people use social engineering. In fact, we all do it, to varying degrees. Some better than others. The book is focused on red teaming for social engineering. A lot of those concepts, though, I could easily apply and even provide examples of doing on a day-to-day basis.
