The Independent Features Nettitude In Password Security Story

Posted by Media marketing on Apr 30, 2014 11:40:38 AM

Nettitude is featured in The Independent newspapers headline story on password security today.

The broadsheet title has produced an in-depth story on the future of online passwords and threat they pose to security on the web.

Nettitude's Principal Security Consultant Matthew Gough was interviewed for the article and is quoted as saying:

"If you stopped 10 people in the street with an appropriate story," he says, "you'd get one or two to give their passwords up." Gough once infiltrated a private company's legal team for a week, nobody questioning the alibi that he was "needed for IT". It is, he says, this unreadiness for attack that hackers – ethical and otherwise – prey on most. "Most people just aren't aware of the threat."
