doesn't even need social engineering. just very targeted, knowing their business, hacking attack (eg phishing through password change see podesta) and remain undetected for a long time just listening in on the email inbox. and jumping in when the situation comes. // in the end encryption didn't help. would help if there were a 2-auth process for those transactions (business ops, business it security) if you cant be 100% sure that your employees fall for phishing, impersonation, or social engineering (there have been reports of secretaries and assistants falling for social engineering to transfer large amounts for bogus but believable business transactions)
