We are the Global Leaders in Social Engineering Training


Our professional training courses are designed to be highly interactive, teaching the practical application of the attacker perspective in order to protect critical assets. Curriculum is focused on real-world scenarios that will prepare students to recognize how cybercriminals influence human behavior.

  • Practical OSINT (2-Day)
  • SERA - Social Engineering Risk Assessment (3-day)
  • APSE - Advanced Practical Social Engineering (4-Day)
  • MLSE – Masters Level Social Engineer (invite only)

Designed and written by Christopher Hadnagy (author of Social Engineering: The Science of Human Hacking and Unmasking the Social Engineer: The Human Side of Security), with contributions by Robin Dreeke (former Chief, FBI Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program), Social-Engineer provides the only performance-based social engineering training courses available to the public.

In addition, our training courses provide the opportunity for you to practice your new skills.  You will also benefit from individualized feedback provided by our professional adversary simulators and social engineers.

Practical OSINT for Social Engineers


Practical OSINT for Social Engineers is a hands-on, 2-day course. Attendees learn how to strategically search, categorize, and organize information. Our instructors use real world examples to demonstrate the use of advance technologies with investigations.

Social Engineering Risk Assessment (SERA)


Social Engineering Risk Assessment (SERA) is a hands-on, 3-day course. Attendees learn how to target and perform laser-focused research. Our instructors use real world examples to demonstrate the use of OSINT in crafting meaningful pretexts. This course also allows the students to perform vishing attacks and craft multiple phishing emails specific to their targets.
