Social Engineering

Kuzuzangpo and greetings from The Bhutan Education and Technology Academy Park Private Limited “The BETA Park”!

Welcome to the fifth of a monthly public discourse space for netizens and citizens, BETA Cyber Socials. The series is about advocacy and general awareness on the internet and cyber world.


This month we are talking about “Social Engineering” with local and international IT/ICT experts. In the context of information security, social engineering is the psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. This differs from social engineering within the social sciences, which does not concern the divulging of confidential information. A type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs from a traditional "con" in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme.

It has also been defined as "any act that influences a person to take an action that may or may not be in their best interests."
