Social Engineering Experts Launch Book Exploring the Deceptive Art of Phishing

Brooklyn, PA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015

Christopher Hadnagy and Michele Fincher, practitioners and consultants in human-based security announced today the release of their latest book, “Phishing Dark Waters: The Offensive and Defensive Sides of Malicious Emails.” An excellent resource for both individuals and corporations, the book examines some of the most current and effective phish used by malicious attackers to compromise systems and steal information. Hadnagy and Fincher discuss the underlying psychology behind phishing attacks, outlining how and why phishing works and the principles behind it, fully exposing flaws and detailing innovate mechanisms to defend against it.

With the release of the book, Hadnagy’s third and Fincher’s first, the authors have filled a critical gap in information security literature by providing a unique and holistic approach to addressing this critical topic.

“Despite legislation, user training, public awareness, and technical security, phishing persists because it exploits our natural responses to email requests,” said Hadnagy. “Malicious attackers understand the mechanisms of influence and manipulation and use these to persuade targets to make a bad decision,” added Fincher.

In addition to providing a deep understanding of phishing, the book also provides actionable items for both individuals and organizations to keep resources safe. Readers will walk away with a firm understanding of how to catch a phish without becoming live bait.

“Phishing Dark Waters: The Offensive and Defensive Sides of Malicious Emails,” is available now on Amazon.
