Exploring the Impact of Social Engineering on Cybersecurity
Social engineering is a method of attacking an organization’s systems and networks by exploiting people’s psychological traits and vulnerabilities. It is a significant threat to cybersecurity as it doesn’t require technical means. Social engineering often involves combining tactics such as phishing, spoofing, and malware to gain access to confidential information and systems. The use of social engineering increases the likelihood of successfully carrying out attacks on companies and government organizations.
