Social engineering is one of the fastest growing cybercrimes out there and it’s our personal information which allows these attacks to be so successful. Offenders are becoming ever more adept in targeting people’s confidential information, gleaning such data as passwords and bank details through very straightforward methods.
A good social engineer will often take weeks or months getting to know a company through a variety of ways. Scouring the major social media sites and business websites for bits of personal information about you are easy wins. For many South East businesses that rely on their social media channels for business, this potentially leaves them wide open to such an attack.
In our latest podcast, Chris White Head of Cyber and Innovation for the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East was joined by Rob May, Director of Ramsac ltd and Alex, a Digital Engagement Manager in the Financial industry. In this episode, the panel discuss what social engineering is, the different vectors of social engineering and how you can protect your organisation from social engineering attacks.
