Social engineering attacks are becoming more and more common against enterprises and SMBs, as well as being increasingly sophisticated. With hackers using ever-more clever methods to trick employees and individuals into handing over valuable company data, companies must use due diligence in an effort to stay two steps ahead of cyber criminals.

These attacks typically involve some form of psychological manipulation, tricking unsuspecting users or employees into handing over confidential or sensitive data such as passwords, email address or banking/credit card information. Commonly, social engineering involves email or other communication that invokes urgency, fear or similar emotions in the receipient, leading the victim to promptly reveal sensitive data, open a malicious file or click a malicious link. Due to the human element, preventing these attacks can be a challenge for businesses.
