Cybersecurity and Social Engineering

London Business Hub is providing advice and information to help businesses and the self-employed work safely during COVID-19. This week, we provide advice and tips on social engineering and Test and Trace.

Social engineering 

Social engineering involves tricking or manipulating people into carrying out specific actions that are useful to an attacker, such as downloading malware or sharing sensitive information. The Police Digital Security Centre (PDSC) has published a glossary covering the main types of social engineering. 

Test and Trace 

The Metropolitan Police Service has published a short video about the COVID-19 Test and Trace service to help businesses spot scams.
