The Keeper team loves blogs. Specifically, we love technology blogs. From cutting-edge news about mobile devices to the latest data breaches, we rely on bloggers to keep us up-to-date on what we need to know. But in the enormous sea of blogs out there, which ones do we keep coming back to? Here’s a list of some of our favorite cybersecurity blogs at the moment (in no particular order): Krebs On Security: Former cybersecurity investigative reporter Brian Krebs penned thousands of articles while at the Washington Post. His cybersecurity blog consists of in-depth write-ups in his appealing and informative journalistic style. WIRED’s Threat Level A great all-around security resource written by editors from  WIRED.com, Threat Level keeps readers up-to-date with security news alerts as well as editorial write-ups. InformationWeek’s Dark Reading From the editors of InformationWeek, Dark Reading is a community-oriented site aiming to connect security professionals and enthusiasts throu

The end of summer brings cooler weather, changing leaves, and a look back at the season s high-profile cyber attacks. Here is a recap of the breaches you need to know about: Home Depot Last month, Home Depot revealed that its systems were infiltrated by malware but only recently did the company admit that the breach occurred as far back as April. For months, a hackers were harvesting customer information through their point-of-sale system, and it is estimated that as many as 56 million payment cards were compromised. That’s even bigger than the Target breach of 2013, which compromised an estimated 40 million cards. According to Home Depot, the malware has now been stopped. Goodwill Stores If six months of malicious data theft sounds like a long time, consider the impact of an 18-month attack, such as the one suffered by dozens of Goodwill resale stores across the U.S. The attack used malware to target a third-party payment processor, resulting in the theft of customer credit ca

Can you remember the first password that you created? Was it “password”? A song title? Your dog’s name plus the year you were born? Second question: Did you use that password for every new account you opened online? Third question: Do you still use that password anywhere and everywhere on the web today? It would be nice to think that we’re all more cybersecurity-savvy than we were 10 years ago. But despite what we have heard about password security, many of us continue to use weak passwords across all of our online accounts. With hacks continuing to increase in strength and numbers, password choice is more important than ever. A strong password is long and complex. A strong password is difficult to remember. A strong password is hard to hack. However, just like building muscle strength, some people are not willing to expend the effort to beef up their passwords. With Keeper, strengthening your online log-in credentials is a lot easier than lifting weights. In fact, it’s as s

We’re going to Ireland! This week, Keeper was selected to attend Web Summit in Dublin, known as Europe’s most prominent technology conference where the world’s greatest venture capital investors, innovators, enthusiasts and tech writers converge. Keeper was also named a START company, which includes 150 of the world’s highest potential and most disruptive young businesses. As part of the START program, Keeper will meet with investors, media and Web Summit partners from around the world. Other companies that have attended in the past include Uber, Nest, Vine and Stripe. “Keeper is both honored and flattered to have been selected for Web Summit. We are excited to attend with the amazing companies in the roster,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-Founder of Keeper. “This has been a remarkable year at Keeper with cutting-edge product features and substantial growth. Our debut at Web Summit will allow us to share our technology and ideas in a very special forum. We are looking

We all know the importance of cybersecurity. Your day-to-day routine probably requires the management of numerous passwords and involves countless connections to websites that could pose a hazard to your personal identity. As we’ve seen from recent events, everyone, including well-known celebrities, is vulnerable to an online attack at any time. But Internet security is not just a personal safety concern these days. It is also an international security issue, and the United States government has taken several steps to treat is as such. In 2009, President Obama appointed an Executive Branch Cybersecurity Coordinator to oversee cybersecurity at a national level, as part of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) enacted by President Bush the year before. The Executive Branch Cybersecurity Coordinator works directly with both state governments and the private sector to create a unified plan of defense against cyber attacks. The updated CNCI is comprised of 12 initiat

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence didn’t have the best holiday weekend. On Sunday morning, several photos surfaced featuring J. Law in a barely-there bathing suit and a few others in a birthday suit. And, this was not a publicity stunt for the young starlet. Instead, these private shots appear to have been stolen from her cell phone. The hacker allegedly responsible for the leak has also claimed to be in possession of more than 60 nude selfies of other female celebrities. Later on Sunday, similarly private photos surfaced of Kate Upton, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Brie Larson, Kirsten Dunst, Becca Tobin, Jessica Brown Findlay, Teresa Palmer, Krysten Ritter, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Yvonne Strahovski, and McKayla Maroney. According to the Associated Press, the FBI has been made aware of the allegations and is addressing the incident. A spokesperson from Apple also made a statement and said the company was looking into whether any of the celebrities’

You’ve already read about our homebase is Chicago. But how much do you know about Keeper’s office in Folsom, California? Folsom plays a pivotal role in making Keeper awesome. Part of the Sacramento County metropolitan region, Keeper’s Folsom office is home to everything that makes Keeper great from our intuitive interface to our iron-clad security.

In honor of National Tell a Joke Day this weekend (August 16th to be exact), Keeper would like to remind everyone that cybersecurity is no laughing matter. Cyberattacks now cost consumers and businesses billions of dollars each year. Really, we aren’t exaggerating. According to a recent study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies and McAfee, cyberattacks have cost the global economy a “conservative” estimate of $445 billion. In addition, attacks account for the loss of 350,000 jobs in the U.S. and Europe. These staggering numbers once again demonstrate the importance of Keeper. With the constant risk of cyber threat looming, diligent password management is essential. Keeper encourages users to change passwords on their most important and frequently used sites every six months. Passwords should also contain letters, numbers and symbols which can be accomplished with Keeper. Additionally, our new Secure File Storage feature allows users the ability to upload and

As much as we hate to admit it, summer is almost over. And that means that it s time to start thinking about (dare we say it) going back to school. We know, it hurts. Sorry. There was a time when school supplies included mostly just pens and notebooks, a planner and maybe some post-its. But times have changed. Nowadays, students need to keep track of passwords, library log-ins, online groups for collaborative projects, and (of course) Facebook profiles. That s why Keeper is the ultimate back-to-school tool. Students of all ages have a lot on their plate, and with Keeper, creating and keeping track of strong passwords is one less thing to worry about. Our new Secure File Storage feature offers students a way to upload and share text files, images, and even Powerpoint projects with others. Plus, once uploaded to the Keeper Vault, those files are safe and can be accessed from any computer. Gone are the days of homework getting forgotten, lost, or eaten. (Sorry kids: Time to find new ex
