Press Release Social Engineering Engagement Framework (SEEF) -- FIRST CUT
As senior professionals in the information-security field, we understand the challenges and know what it takes to pro-tect and safeguard corporate assets because we have helped many of the world’s most dynamic and ambitious companies devel-op their information-security posture. We aim to lead the social engineering profession by delivering visionary leadership projects like the Social Engineering Engagement Framework (SEEF), setting the benchmark for the highest ethical and professional standards. Our goal is to improve social engineering as a discipline and add transparency and professionalism to it to produce comparable and reproducible results and reduce risk in the process.
SEEF has been invented and developed over the past 2 years by Dominique C. Brack, aka “D#fu5e,” and Alexander Bahram, aka “4en5icr.” The framework is based on our personal work experience coming from decades of practical application of information-security principles on an international level.

Transcripts - Press Release Social Engineering Engagement Framework (SEEF) -- FIRST CUT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UNLOCK THE SKILLS OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING ENGAGEMENT MANAGEMENT
BURGISTEIN, Switzerland, November 30th 2015- Reputelligence Publishing will today
release a new book that will teach anyone interested in social engineering the skills to do it
properly, professionally and ethically.
Written by authors Dominique C. Brack and Alexander Bahram, “Social Engineering
Engagement Frame- Work (SEEF),” will address Social Engineering like no other written work
has ever before.
“Reading this book will teach you how SE attacks are being performed, the background and
underlying principles of these attacks, and how to detect and mitigate them,” the authors said of
their eagerly anticipated new book.
Using real scenarios and detailing how to mitigate them Brack and Bahram explain everything in
an easy and understandable way, giving lots of examples and information.
Additionally since social engineering is such a people-oriented topic, a large part of the book is
dedicated to sociological and psychological topics.
As senior professionals in the information-security field, both Brack and Bahram understand the
challenges and know what it takes to protect and safeguard corporate assets.
“We have helped many of the world’s most dynamic and ambitious companies develop their
information- security posture,” the authors noted.
However in their signature offbeat style the authors warn if you expect a totally finished and
polished, politically correct publication then this candid book may not be for you.
“It’s rough, incomplete, probably biased and pragmatic,” the authors said.
Mixing practical applications, experience based and best practice approaches, “Social
Engineering Engagement Frame- Work (SEEF)” offers the most comprehensive view on social
engineering today and will boost you to the front of social engineering tomorrow.
