Course Description

Social engineering is a security attack method that takes advantage of the social aspect of human nature, which includes trust and interactivity. All members of an organization need to recognize how these subtle and manipulative techniques work and what they can do to avoid falling prey to them.

In this course, you'll explore what's meant by social engineering, examining standard social engineering techniques, the basic principles of these kinds of attacks, their intended outcomes, who and what they target, and the risks they pose for your organization.

Moving along, you'll investigate how social engineering is used to launch a cyberattack, study different types of spoofing attacks, and specify best practices to safeguard against social engineering.

At the end of the course, you'll recognize the objectives of social engineering attacks, how they're carried out, and how to implement security measures to prevent them.
