Developers Pose A Significant Phishing Risk, Says Node Summit

At the Node Summit in San Francisco, attendees were delivered a stark reminder that despite being among the most technical members of organisations, developers still pose a significant phishing risk.

Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at DomainTools:

“This is a timely reminder that no one, no matter how technically sophisticated or security-savvy they are, is ‘unphishable.’ Moreover, good social engineering preys upon assumptions and patterns that are particular to the victim. If an attacker knows how a given class of victims tends to think about content (for example, how and where security or technical personnel get information germane to their fields), then they have a real chance to trick the victim. The only unphishable person is one who does not use the Internet.”
