Security Awareness Tips:
Elicitation & Recruitment Part 1 – Can you recognize it?
Elicitation & Recruitment happens in a 3 phase process: Spot & Assess, Develop, Recruit.
Spot & Assess: Foreign Intelligence Officers spot and assess individuals for potential recruitment. Adversaries are not necessarily looking for someone with a high level of access. The FIE will often explore potential exploitable weaknesses, which may be used as a lever against you in the future or they may look for information about someone else they are looking to recruit. These could include: Drugs or Alcohol, Gambling, Adultery, Financial Problems, or other weakness.
Spotting & Assessing to Elicit information can take place anywhere and is usually done in a non-threatening and natural manner – in a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, trade-show, social events, online venues, or even your own home.
Elicitation is the extraction of information during an apparently normal and innocent conversation without the individual noticing. Information does not necessarily need to be at a classified level, it can be sensitive, company proprietary about a program or contract, or personal in nature.
How to detect Elicitation:
- Interest is beyond casual conversation.
- Questions asked seemed designed to obtain specific and sensitive information.
- Some questions asked require detailed and technical answers.
- Employee is approached out of the blue.
- Via direct in person contact
- Through the use of front companies or intermediaries
- Present a low-risk/high gain method
- Cold calling & Email
- Social Networking (LinkedIn, Facebook, fake personas online, etc.
Elicitation Counter Measures:
- Be boring
- Be vague
- Change topic – after changing the topic, pay attention to if the conversation goes back to sensitive information.
- Return the question
- Express suspicion
- Find a reason to leave
- Ask “Why do you ask”.
