Abstract

There are currently more than 3.8 billion social media users in the world. This number is growing at an exponential rate making the education of its users imperative. Hackerville is an interactive website that allows users to learn more about cyber security fundamentals. Network security professionals can take every precaution but none of them will matter without informed consumers. My creative component covers social networking and social engineering. The goal of this lab is to educate users on social engineering techniques, social networking best practices, and phishing awareness.
