1:Tailgating is also called piggybacking according to chapter 11 . The term used in every day driving tailgating is following to close behind someone. The outsider looking inside would not see the harm in tailgating in till they see the danger. My friends i visit often live in a gated community the you must enter your pin code and i remember seeing someone in front of me tailgating behind another car to get in and the gate closed back scratching up the paint on the passenger side of the car. If the gate can’t shuts on a uninvited guest if the untrained employee holds the gate open for them. My friends always warned me about not to tailgate in there neighborhood and to stop and wait for the gates to close after i entered and cleared the gates because there was a neighborhoods meeting about responsibility . How if you or your visitor let people into the neighborhoods that did harm to someone of something by allowing them to tailgate into the entrances the fault can lay on you etc..
2: According to chapter 11 social engineering means using persuasion to get what you want, such as trying to talk someone into providing their information or allowing you access when you don’t have a badge or key. I call social engineering manipulation to keep it short. I think social engineering is done more on social media than in person. Tailgating is something that I have to deal with on a regular basis at my current job, you’ll have coworkers who sneak guest in like this because they are tailgating so closely without the proper credentials or you may be entering a secured area in your vehicle where you have to swipe your badge to enter but the individual in the vehicle behind you have no badge, but got in because he tailgated you.:
3:Lynn, what a great post!!! I like how you “ask questions” when you train. Asking questions is important, especially when training difficult topics that may need clarification, good job!! You also raise a great point about how “information needs to be interesting or trainees will either fall asleep or lose focus.” From my experience, including screen shots seem to help. Lynn and class, what recommendations do you suggest to help keep training interesting?
