Social Engineering

 

 

 

Social engineering is the clever manipulation of our human nature to trust and be helpful. 

 

43% are not aware that clicking a suspicious link or opening an unknown attachment in an email is likely to lead to malware infection, and 59% are not fully confident they could identify a social engineering attack anyway.
