Social engineering is one of the most popular types of attack, based on the fact that the attackers manage institutions or individuals with their communication skills, take advantage of carelessness and lack of awareness and acquire various critical information. It is created by exploiting emotions such as fear, joy, excitement and panic in order for the people selected as targets to disclose sensitive and critical information about the institution or themselves. People who panic or get excited may face serious problems as a result of sharing information with unauthorized people.
Although technological infrastructures are developed, up-to-date and protected against cyber attacks, humans are seen as the weakest link of the relevant ecosystem. Hackers, who are aware of this situation, target people and their processes in general, especially in structural cyber attacks. There are many events that can be an example of this situation.
Phishing attacks are among the most common, known and most common methods in social engineering attacks. Bye-mail, attackers try to download a malicious file with fake content they send to their targets or try to get critical information. Physical social engineering performed by phone and face-to-face following phishing attacks are also preferred by the attackers.
