Two of my favourite areas of software development are privacy and security. As applications get less siloed and more connected, understanding the boundaries between "mine and theirs", and implementing the system correctly are becoming increasingly important.

A little tid-bit I found interesting today was:
Did you know that the new trend is phone phishing? Criminals use VoIP to emulate the bank’s voice prompt system and lure people into giving their account information.

That's worth thinking about if you're an organisation that provides a phone-based service such as phone banking or checking account balances. Tricking someone to dial a phone number (especially an 0800) is probably as easy as tricking them into going to the wrong website.
