Easter Competition.. Win a Sha LoN Basic Pick Set


As a special treat for Easter I am going to give away a Sha LoN Basic Pick Set to one of the Head Hacker Readers.

Of course there is a catch, and you need to be in it to win it, and I will pick the winner on Friday the 9th April 2010. Send your answers eastercomp[at] . I am looking for a concise and interesting answer, that I think best answers this question. My decision is final, good luck.

QuestionIn your own opinion what skills do you think are essential to make you a good social engineer, and what item is essential to have when carrying out a social engineering assessment.

These ShaLoN Picks are great for getting your start in lock picking, and to build up confidence and splash out on a more comprehensive set in the future if you feel the need. The set contains a variety of hook picks, rake, dimple rake and a couple of different tension wrenches.

Happy Easter
