Social Engineering Awareness: Protecting Against Human-Based Attacks

In today’s digital landscape, where technology connects us more than ever before, the threat of social engineering looms large. While firewalls and encryption are vital components of cybersecurity, it’s often the human element that remains the weakest link.
