Information Security (06:08): Social Engineering

Our last video in the Information Security lesson covers my favorite topic, social engineering. In this video we look at: Dumpster Diving, Shoulder Surfing, Tailgating, and Spam & Phishing.

I also tell the story about how I used tailgating to get access to a classroom at the FBI Academy.
