The task was to investigate what different methods are used and how it is used as a tool in cyber attacks. The statistics were analysed what attacks were used the most and how many attacks have been done compared to other years. Analysing the attacks should give more knowledge of what should be made different and how to avoid the situations in the future. Some guidelines were added at the end of study of how oneself could be protected against social engineering attacks.
