    Social engineering is a psychological term with a specific meaning in the vocabulary of security. It describes the obtaining of information through manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidences, as opposed to obtaining the same information through breaking into a computer or using technical hacking techniques.

    One example of social engineering is if I pretend I’m from your bank, and I tell you I need your security details to check the bank’s system.
