In the latest SafetyDetectives interview, we sat down with Daniel Segun, the CEO and Founder of SecureBlitz Cybersecurity Media. With a passion for cybersecurity that began in childhood, Daniel has dedicated his career to making online security information accessible to everyone. During our conversation, he shared insights into SecureBlitz’s mission to empower users through clear, actionable content. Daniel also discussed the criteria SecureBlitz uses for product reviews, emphasizing relevance, reputation, and user demand. Additionally, he provided valuable tips for enhancing personal cybersecurity, highlighting the importance of tools like password managers and two-factor authentication.

Can you tell us about your background and what led you to create SecureBlitz?

Well, cybersecurity has always fascinated me. Ever since I was a kid tinkering with computers, I was curious about the ways things could go wrong.  That curiosity led me down a path of learning everything I could about online security threats and how to protect against them.  After working in the industry for a few years, I noticed a gap. There wasn’t a lot of easy-to-understand, unbiased information out there for the average person. That’s what really sparked the idea for SecureBlitz.

What is the mission of SecureBlitz, and how has it evolved since its inception?

Our core mission at SecureBlitz is to empower everyone to take control of their online safety.

We do that by providing clear, actionable information about cybersecurity threats, best practices, and the latest security products.  Initially, we focused more on in-depth technical reviews. But we quickly realized that the everyday person needed something more accessible.

So we’ve broadened our content to include bite-sized tips, cybercrime bust (cyberbust), and even interviews with security experts.

How do you decide which cybersecurity products and services to review on SecureBlitz?

When it comes to picking products and services to review, we focus on a few key things.

First, is it something that would be relevant to our readers? We want to cover a wide range of tools, from basic antiviruses, effective VPNs, to more advanced security solutions for businesses.

Second, is the product or service well-established and reputable? We don’t want to waste our readers’ time with fly-by-night operations.

Finally, is there a genuine user demand for a review of that particular product? We look at things like online searches and industry trends to gauge interest.

What are the most important cybersecurity tools that everyone should use?

That’s a great question. There are a few essential tools everyone should have in their cybersecurity arsenal.

First and foremost, a strong password manager is key. It helps you create and store complex, unique passwords for all your online accounts.

Second, a reputable antivirus program is a must-have. It can help detect and block malware before it infects your device.

And finally, two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, adds an extra layer of security to your login process. It’s like a double-lock on your online accounts.

What criteria do you use to evaluate the effectiveness of a cybersecurity product or service?

When we evaluate a security product or service, we consider a few key factors.  First and foremost, is it effective? Does it actually do what it claims to do in protecting against cyber threats?

We also look at usability.  Is it easy to install and use?

Because even the most robust security solution is useless if it’s so complex that nobody bothers with it.  Finally, we consider value for money.  Is the product priced fairly for the level of protection it offers?

Do you have any tips for our readers on how to improve the cybersecurity posture?

Absolutely!  Here are a few simple tips to improve your cybersecurity posture:

  • First, be cautious about what information you share online.  Think twice before clicking on suspicious links or attachments in emails.
  • Second, keep your software up to date.  This includes your operating system, web browser, and any security software you use.
  • Finally, be mindful of phishing scams.  Don’t be fooled by emails or websites that try to trick you into giving up your personal information.

By following these tips and staying informed with SecureBlitz, you can take charge of your online safety.
