Microlearning: Security flash - Social engineering


Social engineering is a technique where someone tries to steal confidential information by manipulating the ‘victim’. You are working with lots of information that is attractive to other people. It is therefore important that you can recognize the operating methods of social engineers. For example, always be careful with the information you are discussing in public. If you discuss sensitive information in public, other people can also hear this. That could have nasty consequences.
