The aim of this lesson is for students to become aware of how humans can be a weak point in the system, as well as looking at the social engineering tactics deployed by cybercriminals to dupe users into giving away data that could lead to further crime. The lesson starts with the students using a Scratch program aimed at tricking them into giving away personal information. Students will then be taken through the common social engineering techniques, completing exercises through the lesson to encourage them to think more deeply about the consequences of the scams and how to avoid becoming a victim.

This lesson is the second in a six session teaching unit provided by the National Centre for Computing Education.
