    Lightbulb What is your view on Social Engineering Attacks targeting companies?

    They can come in all kinds, phishing, CEO fraud, BEC fraud and many more, by phone, by skype/slack, whatsapp etc.

    Currently there are products and services that partially mitigates that risk, but no silver bullet.

    With that being said, I think I may have some sort of silver bullet, more exactly a system that allows you to verify all requests coming from people and services you trust.

    Social engineering attacks come in form of requests and by making sure that those requests are genuine, we can avoid being engineered.

    What is your advice on that folks?

    This is not a technical problem, this is a management problem. While user validation is good, it doesn't prevent people from being people.

    Training and testing is part of it, but also limiting the scope of what stupid people have access to is probably more effective.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.
