Social Engineering: The Importance of the Human Factor

Cybersecurity threats are not solely technology-based. Often, the weakest link is the human factor. Therefore, social engineering attacks have become an increasingly concerning issue.

What is Social Engineering?

Social engineering is the art of manipulating individuals to obtain information or perform malicious actions by exploiting their natural tendencies, sympathies, and trust. Such attacks are often carried out through methods such as phone calls, emails, or fake websites.

Why is Social Engineering Dangerous?

Social engineering attacks can compromise not only technical security measures but also undermine people’s attention, information security, and trustworthiness. These attacks can gain access to sensitive information by gaining the trust of employees or users or by introducing malware into a system or network.

Examples of Social Engineering Attacks:

  • Physical Security Breaches: Gaining unauthorized access by using fake identities to enter a building or by deceiving security personnel.
  • Phishing Emails: Sending emails that appear genuine to obtain users’ confidential information.
  • Phone Calls: Attempting to access sensitive information by calling company employees or customers.
