  • Procedures need to be in place, and adhered to by employees. 
  • Awareness programmes with a focus on social engineering tactics need to be conducted and implemented. 
  • To achieve the best results, procedures need to be tailored according to company needs
  • Identify what type of information social engineers would target within your organisation.
