The CyberMaryland initiative published a very nice booklet titled “CyberMaryland: Meet Maryland’s Cyber Warriors” that showcases the many resources, opportunities and companies in Maryland’s cybersecurity ecosystem. The booklet was promoted during last week’s CyberMaryland 2013 Conference and will also be available at the RSA 2014 Conference.
Part of the booklet focused on showcasing Maryland’s hottest cybersecurity companies, and Light Point Security was one of the few companies chosen. We are honored to be mentioned alongside some of Maryland’s most successful cybersecurity companies like Sourcefire (who was acquired by Cisco for $2.7 billion just a few days ago), Tenable and Lockheed Martin.

We’re looking forward to the CyberMaryland 2013 Conference coming up Oct 8 – 9 in Baltimore, MD. Not only will it be an opportunity for us to catch up with old friends, but our CEO, Beau Adkins, will be moderating an excellent panel on cybersecurity innovation and future trends. The idea for the panel stemmed from the fact that we wanted to get some of the best minds in security together to have a candid discussion on the current issues facing the industry and how they see innovation and trends evolving over time to combat the threat.

WordPress is huge. It is currently the most popular blogging system in use, and it manages 22% of all new websites. We use it for our site, and I would personally recommend it to anyone thinking of creating a new website.
However, because it is so popular, it becomes a target for hackers. Right now, automated bots are crawling the web looking for WordPress sites to attack. If you take some time to protect yourself, you can greatly reduce your chances of having a problem. With that, I decided it would be useful to share some of the tips and tricks I have learned to protect our site.

Last night I came across a sobering article from Brian Krebs of KrebsOnSecurity. The article talked about a specific crimeware author that is advertising that he is in the market to buy fresh new browser exploits, but the article had much more information than just that.

Recently, we released an update to our servers that allow our users to view many popular document types through Light Point Web. To accomplish this, we are using the Google Docs Viewer. The Google Docs Viewer is a nifty little service from Google that can turn documents into normal webpages.
The new plugin viewer works automatically. Now, when you click a link to a supported file, such as a PDF, you will be sent to the Google Docs Viewer for that file. This gives you the ability to read the file without it ever touching your computer.
