Abstract: The Master's Thesis (TFM) focuses on social engineering, a tactic used by cybercriminals to obtain confidential information from individuals. The research aims to understand the concepts and techniques related to social engineering, identify the methods used by cybercriminals to carry out social engineering attacks and analyze the information they can obtain through these techniques. Good practices to avoid becoming a victim of these attacks and the legal consequences for violators are also investigated. In the implementation, we install and configure the necessary tools to carry out tests of social engineering attacks, learn how to use them and perform simulations of related attacks. The number of attacks simulated will vary depending on the time available. The purpose of the work is to raise awareness among those who still do not consider social engineering important, so that they can judge for themselves the importance of taking into account this type of attacks. The methodology used is investigative and experimental, with results that allow identifying the tools and techniques used by cybercriminals to carry out social engineering attacks. In conclusion, the work aims to help raise awareness of the importance of cybersecurity and the need to be informed about the risks of social engineering.
