This author discusses the problem of Internet security. He draws some parallels between spammers trying to trick victims to opt out of their e-mail list in order to obtain information on valid e-mail addresses with so-called social engineering techniques used by security perpetrators.

The best way to deal with social engineering threats is through creating and enforcing strict security procedures through education and training
