Technology Challenges Another significant consideration in the cross-cultural deployment of talent assessment tools is the adaptation of the software systems that deliver them.

L.1 ATTACK TECHNIQUES This section covers the attack techniques employed by social engineers (white hats) or evil-minded persons (black hats) using social engineering techniques.Breaching the security of an organization generally starts with the bad guy obtaining seemingly a very innocent, daily and trivial information or a document, which many persons in the organization see no reasons to protect or classify. Most social engineers will welcome the information that is seemingly harmless for an organization because such information might play a crucial role in showing themselves more convincing. There are two main categories under which all social engineering attempts could be classified – computer or technology based deception, and purely
