Digital Devil

Hackers have identified the weakest link in every companies’ IT security protocols – the people. Scammers are infiltrating companies’ networks and payment systems by manipulating rank-and-file employees.

Experts call this social engineering fraud and it relies on crooks tricking employees who just want to do the right thing. One common tactic involves thieves posing as an unpaid vendor trying to get payment for services or supplies. Another involves an outsider pretending to be an IT department employee with a software update in order to get a worker to download malware. Some of these no-good-niks are sophisticated enough that they will wait until a manager’s out-of-office email message is up to pounce on unsuspecting employees.

The current issue of Risk Management Magazine has a handful of tips for identifying these criminals and preventing them stealing from your company.
