From Wikipedia: Social engineering, in the context of information security, refers to psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. A type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs from a traditional "con" in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme.
Susan's definition: Social engineering is the practice of using applied psychology to shape others' behavior outside a controlled (lab, clinic, etc.) setting.
