CIFAS Update: Social Engineering Techniques

The UK’s Fraud Prevention Service have issued a problem profile on Social Engineering Techniques.

‘Social engineering’ is the manipulation of situations and people, by one or more individuals, that results in the targeted individuals divulging confidential information, especially personal details. As former hacker Kevin Mitnick described it, social engineering is “the clever manipulation of the natural human tendency to trust”.
