Social Engineering via distance learning


This program of social engineering deals with the developments and techniques for the manipulation of society, groups and individuals. Social engineering is used by political, corporate and military strategist to foster their agendas, gain social control, manage social change and regulate the future development and behavior of a society. On individual basis, social engineering intends to learn how to influence a person to induce a specific action or decision. Effective social engineering relies much on the use of technology and big data to obtain accurate information about an individual and/or a group profile.
