Are Cybercriminals Selling Your Data On The Dark Web?
If your data has been compromised, cybercriminals might be selling it for profit on the Dark Web right now. Do you know how to find out if your data is for sale?
You hear about data breaches and identity theft every single day.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming it’s all being exaggerated to get your attention. If anything, there are too many data breaches for the news to keep up with:
- 81% of breaches are successful because the cybercriminal hacked weak passwords or stole them in the first place.
- Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first six months of 2019
Given how pervasive modern cybercrime is, one of your primary duties as your business’ leadership is making sure your data is protected.
What if you’ve already been breached, and you just didn’t know it?
Is It Too Late To Protect Your Data?
If you haven’t experienced a data breach, you’re probably confident your data isn’t in anyone’s possession other than your own. Are you completely sure?
Did you know it takes most businesses up to 6 months to find out that they’ve experienced a data breach?
That’s why investing in protection isn’t enough – maintaining the integrity of your business’ data requires you to make sure it hasn’t already been compromised and put up for sale online…
Is Your Data On The Dark Web?
When cybercriminals want to buy or sell private data, they go to the Dark Web.
The Dark Web is a small part of the much larger “deep web” – the common name for an extensive collection of websites that aren’t accessible through normal Internet browsers. These websites are hidden from the everyday Internet — or Clearnet — users through the use of overlay networks.
