What Is Social Engineering? Common Examples and Prevention Tips

Social engineering is an attack vector that exploits human psychology and susceptibility to manipulation victims into divulging confidential information and sensitive data or performing an action that breaks usual security standards. In general, social engineering success relies on a lack of cyber security awareness training and a lack of employee education. Employees are the first line of defense and are frequently the weakest link in an otherwise secure defense in depth strategy.

What is an Attack Vector? Common Attack Vectors

In cybersecurity, an attack vector is a path or means by which an attacker can gain unauthorized access to a computer or network to deliver a payload or malicious outcome. Attack vectors allow attackers to exploit system vulnerabilities, install different types of malware and launch cyber attacks. Attack vectors can also be exploited to gain access to sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII) and other sensitive information that would result in a data breach.
