We are (still) here to make sure that today you learn another thing about cybersecurity awareness. If you combine strong password behavior with a basic level of cybersecurity knowhow, you become a big problem for cybercriminals.
Social engineering is a tricky beast
Social engineering is a targeted attack that uses publicly available information about you to try to convince you to hand over sensitive information or click on a malicious link.
Imagine someone gives you a call claiming to be from your bank or cable company. They ask for a few details to shore up a minor, but urgent, problem in your account. You say yes, because it will only take a couple minutes to resolve and you don’t want to deal with it later.
Voilà—in just two minutes, they have all the information they need to access your account and steal your credit card information—or worse, withdraw a large sum of money directly from your bank account.
Always be skeptical! You can reach out to your bank or service directly if you have any doubts.
Remember, if a service you use is asking for personal information like a password or account number, it’s very likely a scam.
