Influencing Others

“Influence is the process of getting someone else to want to do, react, think, or believe in the way you want them to.” Chris Hadnagy, Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking.

Influence is the very heart of social engineering.  As professional social engineers and security partners, we have made it an organizational priority that our interactions with our clients leave them feeling better for having met us.  When we act with good intent, it is much more likely to leave people feeling positive about what they learned and eager to continue positive growth.
