Protection from phishing
Social engineering is nothing new, with criminals using psychological manipulation since the days of The Trojan Horse. The most successful and widely used form of attack in the modern day is phishing, with attackers using email to trick users into taking action. Email addresses are easily spoofed, email content appears legitimate and the user is manipulated into opening or downloading a compromised document so that a malware attack can be launched.
