Intro to Social Engineering

Humans are widely considered to be cybersecurity’s weakest link. Using social engineering, hackers can deceive and manipulate victims into divulging sensitive information via everyday human interaction — an email, a phone call, or even an in-person conversation. In this beginner-friendly event, find out how and why social engineering works, and learn the countermeasures you need to prevent this kind of cyber attack.
