Social Engineering Attacks, Threats, Best Practices, and More

Learn more about social engineering attacks, threats, and best practices from Charles Denyer, one of the world’s foremost cybersecurity experts and keynote speakers.

Social engineering is an attack vector that relies heavily on human interaction and often involves manipulating people into breaking normal security procedures and best practices in order to gain access to systems, networks or physical locations, or for financial gain.

Threat actors use social engineering techniques to conceal their true identities and motives and present themselves as a trusted individual or information source. The objective is to influence, manipulate or trick users into giving up privileged information or access within an organization. Many social engineering exploits simply rely on people’s willingness to be helpful. For example, the attacker might pretend to be a co-worker who has some kind of urgent problem that requires access to additional network resources.
