Presentation the interaction of the subject and the object of socio-engineering influence with a social graph

Olha Kruk, Rostyslav Herasymov, Oksana Tsurkan


The use of social engineering as an interaction between an attacker and an employee is considered. It shows its focus on receiving sensitive information. This is achieved by an attacker by studying, engaging, trusting, using employee trust. To prevent this, psycho-personal qualities, professional competences of the social engineer and employee are taken into account, and their interaction is represented by a social graph. Its tops reflect a social engineer, employee, quality and compensation; connections – the relationship between them. This approach will make it impossible to manipulate the employee’s mind.
