Cyber Security

Social Engineering

Social engineering exploits the human user instead of the technology itself. It's by far the most common type of "Hacking" today and for good reason...it works. This is one of my favorite videos to share when explaining the importance of being vigilant when working with sensitive data. In education that data is defined by FERPA and HIPAA Laws. Think behavior, grades, students person information. When sharing this type of information please consider how crafty the woman in the video below is and how easy it is for her to get around the security measures in place. It's also fun to share this with friends and family who are less than vigilant with personal information.
