Phishing and Shoulder Surfing

Phishing and Shoulder Surfing are two more exploits that create serious security issues.  Phishing is a form of Social Engineering and we’ll discuss the way in which it is used to create problems on the network and to a computing system and create opportunities for exploiting them.

Shoulder Surfing is always a serious security breach, it a practice that takes advantage of someone’s lack of attention or poor privacy practices to help them gain access to unauthorized resources.  At the completion of this lesson, you’ll know how these events can occur and some key strategies on how to prevent and minimize their occurrence.
