The Wild Wild Net is occupied by more than just phishing and malware threats. It is also home to the social engineer — the master of lies and disguise. Take a look at this poster, but don’t let his smile fool you.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a great reminder to look out for the social engineer. But keep in mind — even beyond October — if you’re ever unsure about a request for access or information, verify with your manager first!
