Social Engineering Event at The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP)

A definition by Kapersky Lab US:

Social engineering is a form of techniques employed by cybercriminals designed to lure unsuspecting users into sending them their confidential data, infecting their computers with malware or opening links to infected sites. In addition, hackers may try to exploit a user's lack of knowledge; thanks to the speed of technology, many consumers and employees don't realize the full value of personal data and are unsure how to best protect this information.
