With the help of this awareness training by TÜV AUSTRIA Academy, employees know how social engineering works and how to increase cyber security.

By using this e-learning training, organisations can increase their level of cyber security! Social Engineering is a manipulation technique that exploits human error to gain private information, access or valuables: One wrong click by one single user is all it takes for hackers to get access to sensitive corporate data. Attackers misuse typical human characteristics such as fear, cooperativeness or curiosity by manipulating humans in such a way that they avoid security measures and disclose key data. Even worse: Often companies react to attacks after being noticed by alerted employees. When it comes down to increase people`s awareness for social engineering risks, security check trainings like this TÜV AUSTRIA e-learning program provide the best support!
