Ethical Hacking: Social Engineering
Social engineering covers a wide range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions. Typically these malicious activities involve tricking users into making security mistakes or giving away sensitive information instead of hacking into their systems. Social engineering is recognized as one of the greatest security threats facing organizations today. Social engineering can be in forms of emails from friends, emails from trusted sources or from responses to an issue you didn’t address. Social engineering is considered to be the easiest way to gain access to another computer or system than hacking. It is important to be educated and be aware of social engineering practices in order to safeguard personal and confidential information.
Hackers mostly try to gain access to a computer or system through social engineering as it is comparatively easier than hacking.
