Use Social Engineering and Social Manipulation to perform advanced attacks on your targets for intelligence gathering and exploitation. Approximately 216 million people were victims to some form of Social Engineering attack in 2013. Without proper education and training, even the most hardened networks can fall victim to attacks of this nature, because the target is not your computers, it's your people. Don't let your organization be a part of that statistic.
In this class you will be researching targets through social media, staging fake phone calls to gather information, setting up fake websites that pertain to your targets interests, and finally enticing them to surf to your malicious website so that you can gain access to their network and eventually their sensitive data.
