May 2021 Security Awareness Training: Social Engineering Job Post Scams

Social engineering is the manipulation of people’s emotions to trick them into divulging private information or performing actions they normally wouldn’t do. In this episode, Liz is managing a video project which she suspiciously hasn’t been paid for yet even though she and her team have just finished shooting the project. This sparks a conversation with her colleague Harlan – played by Alex Thomas – where Harlan informs Liz of social engineering through job post scams which can often be represented as great opportunities. Watch to learn more from Harlan and Liz about social engineering through job post scams.
