In the latest of guest blogs from Dan Raywood, the subject of doxing is covered, which is a topic that was raised in one of our recent #InfosecLunchHour meetings. Thank you Dan for providing such great insights again!
We’ve all received a scam call, where the mysterious number appears on your phone and you answer in a mixture of concern and intrigue, wondering who it is. Usually it’s someone trying to sell you something, ask if you were in an accident, or claim to be from Microsoft Tech Support. You know. The usual drill.
In a recent meeting of information security professionals, this was one of the subjects which came up in discussion. More specifically, if you experience one of these calls and then shared the number that the call came from, are you breaching data protection laws by doing this?
