Social engineering involves tricking your employees into breaching security protocols or giving away information, most often over the telephone or via email. Social engineering exploits human weaknesses rather than technology, preying upon people’s propensity towards trust in particular. Often, these exploits are used to gather information to support a more targeted cyberattack, with the initial forays based on the premise of ‘little and often’ so as not to cause concern. Employees at all levels, including senior executives, are vulnerable.
My upcoming 3-day Masterclasses in Cybersecurity in Dubai, London, New York and Singapore will address how to improve employee awareness by introducing simple technical measures. Organizations will be able to protect themselves against social engineering techniques and the risk of a cyberattack and its potential impact on business, customers and data.
