About the course

Social engineering is a technique in which an attacker attempts to manipulate a victim in order to retrieve information. The technique targets the weakest link in the security chain: the human factor. You may handle confidential information that is attractive to others. That is why this video helps you recognize practices used by social engineers. Also, you will learn to be aware of the information you disclose in public. People might overhear you discussing confidential information when you find yourself in a public place.

• What is the goal of social engineers?
• What should you be aware of when talking in public?
• What should you do when someone you don’t know asks for information?
