LastPass is an amazing password manager. You can use the free version or you can get a family or business account. With the family account, you can set an emergency access person in case something happens to you.
ProtonVPN is one of my favorite VPN service providers. They are a security focused company that you can trust with your data.
TunnelBear is a great VPN when you want to split your subscription between multiple devices. Maybe a team or your family. With the basic subscription, you can keep the communications of 5 devices secure.
This tool works exceptionally well for penetration tests or social engineering engagements. You can spoof your number while making calls and texts. It also has the ability to disguise your voice.
No matter how hard you try or how diligent you are, something is bound to happen to your systems and if you don’t have a backup in place, you are doomed. BackBlaze is an amazing cloud backup that I use and trust.
The Yubikey is revolutionary. The hardware Two Factor Authentication device integrates with hundreds of platforms and allows you to really lock down your account and rest assured no one will compromise them.
ANTIVIRUS / ANTIMALWARE
SOPHOS is an amazing security solution. It provides anti-malware, anti-virus, and even anti-ransomware. I have been very happy with the product and its capabilities.
Favorite Cybersecurity Books
This is a must read. Brian Krebs did an amazing job researching and documenting his findings while investigating pharmaceutical spam producers and their links to organized and cyber crime.
The Hacker PlayBook 3
This is one of my favorite books for getting started learning hacking. The step-by-step tutorials are great to help you get going.
