Social Engineering - Learn about the threats, attacks and how to prevent, defend and deter against these

4.8 out of 5 average

(see feedback)


Our Social Engineering training course gives an insight into the vulnerabilities exposed to businesses from the ‘human factor’.

Social Engineering exploits flaws in human weakness and constitutes one of the highest threats to organisations today, as they are able to use deception to manipulate individuals into divulging confidential or personal information that may be used for fraudulent purposes.

Social engineering remains one of the most effective means of attacking organisations of all sizes.  Attackers are becoming more sophisticated. and are using a multitude of attack vectors.  Not only are they relying on technical means of attack but are exploiting human behaviour to gain information. 

Your staff need to be able to identify and defend against attempted attacks, both in the work place and whilst away using corporate IT equipment.
