Every crisis creates an opportunity for criminals to exploit victims via social engineering as they take advantage of psychological weaknesses. Many of the traditional human vulnerabilities are at greater risk in a time of permacrisis; curiosity, the power of authority figures, manufactured urgency, greed, and other weaknesses that will continue to be used to the attackers’ advantage. As the level of sophistication increases, even the most tech-savvy of us can fall victim to a well-crafted attack, and it’s our job in the industry to build more resilient systems and tools.
