Course overview

“You must trust and believe in people, or life becomes impossible.” So said the famous Russian writer Anton Chekhov. And, well, he had a point. Without trust, we wouldn’t form friendships or relationships. But here’s the thing, Anton: you really can’t trust everyone.

It was probably a bit different back in the 19th century what with the lack of computers and everything. But cyber tricksters and con artists are everywhere today, and they’re preying on our natural inclination to trust and help others. By pretending to be genuine, social engineering criminals manipulate people into giving away confidential and sensitive information.
