Social Engineering: Compromising Two Factor Authentication on Gmail
Two factor authentication just like many other security controls is perceived as a good security control. Many companies establish these controls within their organizations and at the same time hackers who wish to access company data are constantly trying to find ways to beat these controls. Sometimes they fail to find ways through these control so they decide to “hack the employees” this is basically termed as social engineering. This info graphic shows how a human resource manager was tricked into letting the hacker log into his Gmail.
In the Kenya Cyber Security Report 2016, one of the cyber security Gaps in Kenya is employee training, many companies install great security controls but don’t give any sort of training to the employees who consequently expose the companies to hackers.
