Social engineering is a tactic used to manipulate individuals into sharing confidential information. Threat actors achieve this by exploiting human psychology, trust, and emotions. Many cyber criminals establish their initial foothold through social engineering. Therefore, there is a need for more education and awareness in this area. To address these issues, we developed a game, Zero Trust, as an interactive approach to instill educational awareness and mitigate the risks associated with social engineering. The game aims to encourage students to identify signs of social engineering attempts and foster a security-conscious mindset.
