In 2021, 98% of successful cyber attacks were caused by social engineering. At the same time, social engineering threats also rose by an astounding 270% in 2021. This means that social engineering is one of the biggest threats to cybersecurity and one of the hardest to combat. But first off, what exactly is social engineering and why is it so successful? What are the most successful social engineering tactics and what can we expect to see in the near future? With social engineering being so prolific, what are the steps we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our businesses from falling victim to these attacks? For this episode, we're joined by Marilise de Villiers Basson, the founder & CEO of ROAR! and cyber gurus Rob May and Scott Schober to answer these questions and discuss everything social engineering, from the good to the bad, and show you how we can shield ourselves from the social engineering onslaught.
