[Social Engineering, A Threat That’s Often Overlooked & Difficult To Overcome]

We know the common threats to look out for; Viruses, Worms, and Trojans to name a few but there is another threat that’s often overlooked and difficult to overcome; Social Engineering.

A social engineer can be anyone who can gain access to devices or a network by tricking people into providing the necessary information to cause damage.

A social engineer may obtain the confidence of an employee to convince them to divulge username and password information or may pose as an employee in an attempt to gain entry to a facility.

That is why it is important for companies to inform users about security policies such as never giving out your password, even if you get a call from your IT department.
