The purpose of this paper is to explain how Social Engineering can defeat Intrusion Detection (ID) Systems. As we now enter the 21st Century, the computer age and cyber warfare is in full swing. Companies and organizations are still not fully addressing or understanding the issue of Social Engineering. The concept of Social Engineering can cause destruction to networks and cost companies millions of dollars. This paper will try to bring to light exactly how Social Engineering exposes the vulnerabilities of Intrusion Detection Systems and what can be done to protect ourselves against these vulnerabilities.
