About

Social engineering describes the psychologically manipulative ways hackers and criminals access confidential information, like passwords and bank information. Methods included in this manipulation include pretexting, spear phishing, and clone phishing, amongst a whole host of others (for more information, see phishing awareness training).

Recognising and combating social engineering in the workplace is paramount to your business' cyber security and information security.
