Social Engineering

Discover how social engineering works in information security, and how you can protect yourself from attacks by cybercriminals.

About this online course

“You must trust and believe in people, or life becomes impossible.” So said the famous Russian writer Anton Chekhov. And, well, he had a point. Without trust, we wouldn’t form friendships or relationships. But here’s the thing, Anton: you really can’t trust everyone.

It was probably a bit different back in the 19th century what with the lack of computers and everything. But cyber tricksters and con artists are everywhere today, and they’re preying on our natural inclination to trust and help others. By pretending to be genuine, social engineering criminals manipulate people into giving away confidential and sensitive information.
