Re: Smart> and sophisticated social engineering
One of the more interesting things I read about Fin4 was in the New York times report which quoted Jen Weedon, a FireEye threat intelligence manager, who said the targets were people in senior roles with "enough juicy information in their inbox." What they were after were propetary info "protected by attorney-client privilege, safety reports, internal documents about investigations and audits."  The social engineering was quite sophisticated. NYTimes link is here.

Smart
This is so nifty. I don't mean to endorse malpractice, but a smart hacker is perhaps always a step ahead of a smart security dev. Ethical hacking is not the market mantra for nothing. Besides, risk assessment isn't always about PCI, PII and HIPAA ..  it is about securing the proverbial weak link in the chain - the human factor, which is most vulnerable to these breaches. bit .ly /1x9cKEm
