26 Nov 2014 - Social Engineering Challenge: cyber security by manipulating people
Phishing, scamming, and hacking. These are terms that we immediately associate with cybercrime. This type of crime has increased greatly in recent years, so that the security of systems has also inherently improved. But the weakest link in the security of systems often lies not so much in the systems themselves, but in humans. In order to combat cybercrime, researchers from UT research institute CTIT are calling upon all inhabitants of the European Union to devise scenarios that scammers can use to deceive people. In the Social Engineering Challenge 2014 participants are also encouraged to think about how such an attack can be repelled.
