Social engineering is the art of manipulating, influencing, or deceiving you in order to gain control over your computer system. The hacker might use the phone, email, snail mail or direct contact to gain illegal access. Phishing, spear phishing, and CEO Fraud are all examples.
Hackers use a combination of pretexting, baiting, water-holing, CEO Fraud and other techniques to lure employees for systems and assets to be compromised. Improve your security posture immediately by better understanding the risk and with targeted additional training for specific employees that may be vulnerable to such attacks.
