What is social engineering in cybersecurity?

What is social engineering in cybersecurity?

Before even answering that question, do you even think for a second that it applies to a common user of the internet – such as YOU and me?

By definition – social engineering is a way or a technique that cybercriminals and hackers use to trick or fool you into clicking on a link and/or giving away sensitive information which turns into them having control of YOUR information that is used maliciously.

When you click on a link and a malware is inserted in your network – the question is…how FAR does it go and how much is it going to COST you?

A coordinated social engineering attack!

Think about this….

Does it stop at bitcoins or cryptocurrency?
Does it only effect famous and well-known celebrities or huge enterprises?
What is the entry point of a scam which never make the news?

Are YOU fully protected against cyberattacks that could damage your data & backups?

Do YOU want to worry less & sleep better at night?

If you’d like to learn more about how I can help you, grab some time from my calendar ... because I’d hate to see you lose your data at the hands of hackers!
