Social engineering attacks are common yet a very deceptive way of accessing someone's personal information. In this kind of cyber attack, the attackers entice users into providing their login credentials or other sensitive information.
For more than a decade, the most commong source of social engineering attacks was email. But with rapidly evolving technology, cyber attacks have also strengthened and the attackers may approach you via your phone or social media. These techniques involve creating a tailor-made trap for each individual by using their personal information. The chances of user engagement are higher if the email contains specific information about them. The detailed research involved in social engineering differentiates it from other types of phishing tools.

Vishing (Voice Call) Assessments
"Vishing" is the term used for phishing attacks that involve voice, mostly over the phone. These phone calls persuade users into giving away critical information. In many cases, users are also persuaded into downloaded malware. The reason vishing attacks are lethal is the immediate interaction hackers have with users. They use personal interaction to extract necessary information.
