Today marks the 14th anniversary of KrebsOnSecurity! Instead of delving into another Cybersecurity Year in Review or predicting cyber horrors for 2024, I want to express my gratitude for your ongoing readership, encouragement, and support. Your support is invaluable and enables me to continue doing what I do.

As of this milestone, I have officially been an independent investigative journalist for longer than my time as a reporter for The Washington Post (1995-2009). This doesn’t include the years I spent as a paperboy delivering The Washington Post to numerous homes in Springfield, Va. as a young teen.

When I first joined The Washington Post as a copy aide, I had the opportunity to meet the publisher Don Graham. Although I felt out of place, sharing my paper route story with him made a lasting impression and helped me feel at ease among the executives.

I’m thankful to WaPo for imparting valuable skills on distilling technical jargon into plain English for a broad audience and emphasizing the human element in technical stories. People’s struggles are universally relatable, irrespective of the technical details.

Expressing my gratitude for the continued success of my independent reporting feels inadequate. I’m grateful for the support and the opportunity to share my research findings with thousands of visitors to the site. I hope to continue doing this because, honestly, I’m unqualified for much else!

We have reached a significant milestone with over 52,000 subscribers to our email newsletter, which sends out a plain text email whenever a new story is published. It’s free to subscribe, and we never share email addresses with anyone.

I’d like to emphasize that although you may see ads at the top of this website, all ad content is vetted by me and served in-house. We do not host any third-party content. If you use an ad blocker, please consider making an exception for KrebsOnSecurity.com, as our advertising partners help support the site financially.

Lastly, here are some of the most-read stories published by KrebsOnSecurity in 2023. Happy 2024 everyone!
