Social engineering is the process of manipulating people or groups into doing things that they otherwise would not. In the context of computer security, this is typically used to get people to divulge confidential information. It can also be used to persuade someone to click on a malicious link or to convince someone to purchase an item that they normally wouldn’t. Common forms of social engineering include phishing and impersonation.
