Protect yourself and your business from Social Engineering

Now hackers are exploiting weaknesses in people rather than technology using social engineering. Social Engineering, the art of manipulating people so they give up confidential information, allowing hackers to “hack” a person instead of the network.

You will learn:

·       How an innocent conversation could give a hacker access to your data
·       How to protect yourself, your business and your customers
