1Password will now help small businesses identify chinks in their security armor

Password manager firm 1Password has released a new solution it claims will help firms improve their overall security posture.

Insights from 1Password contains tools to help firms monitor data breaches, password vulnerabilities, and team usage within shared vaults, while also providing suggested next steps and allowing businesses to notify employees of data breaches.

The news comes as fatigue regarding password security remains high among the workforce, 20% of burned-out workers feel their company’s security policies “aren’t worth the hassle” according to 1Password’s own research, not a glowing recommendation of the current crop of business password managers.

What can the solution do?

Insights from 1Password can monitor how data breaches affect existing team members and identify the type of data exposed.

As part of the product’s suite of ID management tools, it can also identify business email addresses exposed in data breaches among employees who have yet to register for a 1Password account. 

1Password can also alert employees about data breaches and share recommendations to determine next steps and help secure affected employees.

In addition, the new tool will include new tools for password management.

These include capabilities to identify weak, reused, and compromised passwords across employees and teams, leveraging data from third party website Have I Been Pwned to help IT and security teams track and report on detailed password health metrics, and providing detailed exportable reports and shareable links to mitigate risks and vulnerabilities.

Capabilities to monitor team usage are also included in the latest offering from 1password, which it says can help to minimize security risks stemming from issues such as Shadow IT.

These include identifying who hasn’t used their account lately and sending reminders to employees to use their accounts, as well as understanding who isn’t using their private vaults, and sending reminders to employees to mitigate risks from poor security hygiene.

“To keep your employees safe and secure at work, you need to know where vulnerabilities exist in your organization,” said Jeff Shiner, CEO of 1Password. “Having the right policies in place is just the start."

"We designed Insights from 1Password to give IT and security admins broader visibility into potential security risks so businesses improve their understanding of the threats posed by employee behavior, and have clear steps to mitigate those issues.”

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
