The title of the new book is Understanding Social Engineering Based Schemes. And its mission is three-fold, Jakobsson says. He wants to profile today's most common schemes, forecast some future trends, and help organizations build effective countermeasures.
In an interview about the contents of his new book, Jakobsson discusses:
- The evolution of socially engineered schemes;
- Why these scams are still so successful;
- Technology solutions that can help detect and deter the scammers.
