Loistava’s Origin Story
Born in Bellevue, WA, a bustling high-tech suburb right outside of Seattle, we founded Loistava Information Security with a simple vision – to make cybersecurity accessible to everyone. Loistava, a Finnish word meaning ‘brilliant’ or ‘shiny’, represents our commitment to illuminating the often-dark domain of information security.
We believe in the power of the physical, designing products that turn the abstract concepts of cybersecurity into tactile experiences. Our mission is to bridge the gap between complex cybersecurity advice and the everyday individuals and small businesses who need it the most.
Meet The Team
Anthony is a seasoned Consent Form Editor at the largest Institutional Review Board (IRB) in the U.S., involved in over 1,000 COVID-19 research studies. His expertise in translating technical medical language into accessible terms is now applied to demystifying the complex world of passwords for the non-technical user.
Trever has 20+ years of experience sourcing, designing and developing exclusive consumer products for national retailers Dillards, JCPenney, Chico’s, Nordstrom, and Sur La Table. Often these private-label brands and products generated more revenue and exceeded goals and expectations of national and designer-branded product. Currently Trever serves as a Merchandise Development Manager at Pokémon Center.
The Modern Password
Digital threats like data breaches and identity theft have grown alongside the benefits of the Internet.
A significant cause? Repeated use of the same passwords across different accounts. To counteract this, we made this animated explainer video, The Modern Password.
Our goal with the video is to give people the latest and most up-to-date information about how to make and use modern passwords that will help keep them safer online.
This award-winning animated video was our effort to make cybersecurity advice engaging and approachable. Since then, we’ve developed physical products like CASTALOT™ Dice and GhentWare™ — turning abstract cybersecurity concepts into tangible tools.
Our goal? Cybersecurity best practices in every home, every school, and every business. Let’s create a safer digital world together.
