Advanced Social Engineering and Vulnerability Assessment
The DOGANA project aims to draw public attention to the risks associated with social engineering attacks. It is also going to provide a set of tools and procedures, within the proper legal framework, that can be used to perform social engineering audits ― scaled in such a manner that organizations can efficiently evaluate the risks to which they are really exposed.
The underlying concept of DOGANA is that Social Driven Vulnerabilities Assessments (SDVAs), when regularly performed with the help of an efficient framework, help deploy effective mitigation strategies and lead to reducing the risk created by modern Social Engineering 2.0 attack techniques. Two relevant features of the proposed framework are:
- The awareness component as the cornerstone of the mitigation activities
- The legal compliance by design of the whole framework
INOV contributes to the project in many ways, including the development of tools for audit implementation and monitoring.
The project ended in 2018.
