This paper focuses on avoiding Social Engineering attacks through Security Education Training and Awareness (SETA). Hackers continue to exploit the weakest asset in IT security, which is the human asset. This paper will outline four Social Engineering attacks that are designed to manipulate the emotions of the victim. These four attacks are: Spear phishing/whaling, Drive/CD baiting, In-person Pretexting, and Wi-Fi Evil Twin. The purpose of this paper is to show how SETA can help users and businesses avoid the costly impact of Social Engineering attacks.
