4.0 von 5 Sternen Takes social engineering to the next level 14. April 2014
Von Ben Rothke - Veröffentlicht auf
In his first book, Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking, author Christopher Hadnagy wrote the definitive book on social engineering. In it, he detailed the entire lifecycle of social engineering and pretty much everything you needed to know on the topic.

In his just released follow-up Unmasking the Social Engineer: The Human Element of Security, he takes social engineering up a few levels. While the first book was more of a practical introduction to the topic, this is an advanced title for the serious practitioner. There is a lot of interesting information and research provided in the book. But the challenge here is not just reading it; rather it is in mastering its practical use.

The book is meant to show the reader how do read a person's body language and facial expressions. By understanding them, it makes social engineering easier, but also defending against social engineering attacks easier also. If you can understand how an attacker uses non-verbal behavior, then you can better defend yourself and your organization against them.

While the first book was about a standard approach to social engineering, this new title can be seen as advanced social engineering. The premise of the book is that in order to effectively and fully deal with and defend against social engineering threats, an understanding of how non-verbal communications is used is important.

The book notes that much of our everyday communications are nonverbal. And as its name implies, nonverbal communication is the process of communicating and understanding messaging via mechanisms such as touch, posture, body language, eye movement, eye contact and more.

Since social engineers and scammers use these techniques, it is important to understand them in order to defend against them.

The books forward is written by Dr. Paul Ekman. Ekman is a renowned psychologist whose career is deeply enmeshed in non-verbal communications. Hadnagy's approach is based significantly on methods Ekman developed, much of it starting over 35 years ago. As to Dr. Ekman, he was ranked in the 100 most cited psychologists of the 20th-century.

Of the books 4 parts, half of the book is in part 2 - Decoding The Language of the Body. The 4 chapters in the section particularize the various aspects of how movements around different body parts can be interpreted.

While an interesting read, the techniques detailed in the book are quite complex. Whereas it is often difficult to understand what people say, understanding their non-verbal communications is not a trivial endeavor. Readers should therefore not read this 200 page book and expect to come out experts in non-verbal communications.

For the serious reader who wants to understand everything they can about the topic of social engineering, Unmasking the Social Engineer: The Human Element of Security should one of the references in their reading arsenal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a unique book that blends body language research with social engineering. 24. Mai 2014
Von Guiger1000 - Veröffentlicht auf
SURPRISE NO.1: The author avoids using body language myths and generalizations e.g crossing arms and legs means closed and uncrossed means open. This book is more detailed, the author goes into the theory and research of body language in a way that kept me hooked until the end

SURPRISE NO.2: Although the book is about the human element of security, the information was relevant to many human relationships: co-workers, negotiators, parent to child etc.

WARNING: Don't expect an ordinary book about body language. Yes, the book breaks body language down into sections and examines different parts separately. But it also links non verbal behaviour with how people process emotions and how it's used in techniques such as hijacking the amygdala, nonverbal conversational signals, elicitation and other social engineering skills.

It made me aware that I was seeing business people, politicians, and salesmen etc. using similar techniques. In my experience, for people who are interested in body language, it's one of the rare books that made me set everything aside in order to read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen educational, insightful, knowledgeable 8. Juli 2014
Von D&D - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
An impulse buy on seeing the eminent Paul Ekman's name, I was disappointed when the book arrived to discover he had just written the foreword. It got better after that. The author defines a social engineer as a good communicator not, as claimed on the back cover, "getting people to do what you want" (ie manipulator) but throughout the book he gives examples of brilliant manipulation.

Easy to read, it would need a lot of study to put into practice. Written from the point of view of someone paid to breach business/building security, to find and report on their weak points, he makes it look much easier than it must be.

A complex, concentrated expose of how to interpret a myriad of body language and facial expressions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very cool 23. Mai 2014
Von Jo Christmas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
As a techie, I found this book to be quite enlightening. Not only did it inform me of how the mind of an attacker would work in these types of scenarios, but also laid things out in a way I could learn from which was quite fun and engaging.

It was a relief to get a way from the technical mumbo-jumbo hacker text and step into the psychology of a social engineer.

Do recommend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Christopher Hadnagy does it again with Unmasking the Social Engineer 5. März 2014
Von SPACED - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm very familiar with the author's passion for Social Engineering and all aspects related to it, due to being an avid listener of the Social Engineering podcast. Of course having enjoyed his previous book, I picked this one up right away… well I couldn’t put it down. The main take away i got from the book was realizing this is not just for social engineers, there are a great many practical aspects of non-verbals that apply to daily life; from being more aware of detecting the emotions of loved ones, to noticing the non-verbal tells of those in your professional life... and of course, learning how to become a better human hacker. The illustrations / photos were great, something you can't get from just a written or verbal description. My only complaint is some items were so interesting, I wish they were gone into with more details. The references to the research and sources were well documented, something many similar books lack. Also, for those new to social engineering / influence there are quite a few reviews of the basics yet done in such a way as to be concise and not bore those already familiar... personally I found those items valuable as a quick refresher. Again, great book and really the only one I know of that concentrate on the of non-verbals as applied to social engineering. This is an essential read for the penetration tester / security professional that goes on engagements with human interaction.
