Anyone who wishes to enhance their knowledge of social engineering can attend this course. Professionals who wish to learn how to secure systems from social engineering attacks can also attend this course.
There are no formal prerequisites for this course.
Social engineering refers to the art of manipulating people to gain access to confidential data for fraudulent purposes. It is a term used for a wide range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions.
Because social engineering relies on human error rather than vulnerabilities in software and operating systems, it requires a different approach to traditional network security.
This Social Engineering course is designed to provide knowledge to defend against social engineering tricks. During this training, delegates will learn about various influencing techniques including reciprocity, scarcity, and likability.
They will also become familiarised with common elicitation techniques, as well as pretexting. By the end of the course, you will understand the various computer-based and physical tools of social engineering, including the Social Engineering Toolkit (SET).
