Social Engineering

Social engineering refers to a technique used by cybercriminals to manipulate individuals or employees within an organization into revealing confidential information, performing actions, or compromising security measures. This manipulation often relies on psychological manipulation, deception, and impersonation. Common social engineering tactics include phishing emails, pretexting (creating a false scenario to obtain information), and baiting (enticing victims to download malicious software).
