If the Equifax hack has taught us anything, it’s that online security is still anything but secure. With a new hack or breach making news almost daily, people are constantly being reminded about the importance of secure passwords, yet some are still not following proper password protocol. Enter Dashlane which allows users to securely manage passwords, credit cards, IDs, and other important information via advanced encryption. Dashlane has helped over 3.8 million users manage and secure their digital identity, and has enabled over $4.5 billion in e-commerce transactions. Discussing Dashlane and the fate of online security and Equifax is Dashlane CEO Emmanuel Schalit.


“When you run larger companies you’re always frustrated because older corporations are hard to change. You want to hire the people you want to hire. Starting a company from scratch is a next step.”

“I was 10 or 12 when I was reading incomprehensible science books and I found it to be so beautiful.”

“3 billion of use the internet everyday and 3 billion of has internet security problems. It’s exciting to find a universal problem that needs to be solved.”

“The recognition that this was a problem technology can solve. I like nothing more than taking a complicated problem and finding a simple solution.”

“The biggest misconception about passwords is that create the biggest

“The only thing you can do as an individual is have a different password everywhere.”

“Dashlane gives you a tool that you install that makes managing passwords incredibly simple. You don’t need to know your password anymore.”

“These large, powerful tech companies have a role in this. If they allow users to have passwords 1,2,3,4,5 they are part of the problem. Why do some companies care and why don’t others?”

“Apple is at the extreme end of being security conscious. Amazon let’s you use any password you want.”

“Equifax is still being investigated. Chances are something sophisticated didn’t happen. Like the presidential campaign. The source of the hack is a previously stolen password.”

“Companies are in the business of storing and using consumer data.”

“Our customers give their app the identity data. It does not come through us. There is nothing to hack for us. What they would get is jibberish.”

“We’ve all been hacked. The important question is when will I know and how will it affect me. It will be hard to know because sometimes it’s an account you never use.”

“Common sense things like regularly looking at your credit score and your credit card statement. We all have to watch through our email.”

“Our phones have biometric systems. Facial recognition is there for convenience.”

“Imagine 3million biometrics have been stolen not 3million passwords.”

“Biometrics should never be used as a total security system because it can’t be changed.”

“Digital identity crosses the boarder between home and work.

“Protect companies by giving them a product that they like and use.”

“Identity is something you need to share. People need to share the company Twitter password. With Dashlane 2.0, if someone changes the password everyone’s knows.”

“Always be suspicious when you receive an email that asks you to do something.”

“If you live in a world where you don’t have to think about these things, we all live in a better world.”




Claudia Christian may be best known for her role as Commander Susan Ivanova on the science fiction television series Babylon 5 but her main work is done publicizing treatment for alcohol dependency, as told in her book Babylon Confidential, a book which recalls her own experiences with alcoholism. In 2014, Claudia produced a documentary titled One Little Pill about her C3 Foundation, which she founded helping others fight the disease.

“I spent an extraordinary amount of money on rehab. I researched and found that alcoholism is a brain disorder. The problem isn’t going away.”

“After I found a treatment that worked for me, the Sinclair Method, I opened up the C3 Foundation.”

“Rehab doesn’t do anything to change the brain. It doesn’t treat the biological.”

“Give people options. If meetings don’t work, rehabs don’t work. The judgement hurts the addict. We need to remove the shame.”

“Everything we do at C3 Foundation, we do for free.”

“We’re currently doing a physician outreach to spread awareness. I spoke at DC in front of the senate last year. I would like to see Naltrexone over the counters.”

“I became a drug and alcohol counselor in the UK.”

“I always thought being an actress was a very selfish career, but I was raised to help each other. I knew I’d have to diversify to voice work, I started writing books. I’m far more satisfied than waiting for the phone to ring. The joy of helping others or saving lives has made my life have meaning. When I found something that worked for me I wanted to spread it to others. I know the shame of it. I feel huge compassion for them.”
