Social engineering is real, and no one is immune. The risks are alive and burning 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, whether you’re at home, the office, or somewhere in-between. Social engineers are intelligent individuals, going to extraordinary measures to build trust and rapport with their victims before exploiting these relationships in favour of valuable data and cash.

- Analyse and assess the risk web-crooks and social engineers pose
