Every day there is a new breach, but where does that information go? The answer is the Dark Web.
The Dark Web is made up of anonymous, digital communities that live in the unsearchable portions of the internet. While there are other purposes for the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, such as the disclosure and sale of digital credentials.
Often compromised information is sold on the Dark Web and by the time companies are informed, it is too late.
How does this happen? It can happen numerous ways, but the most common way is when employees use their work-related email on third party websites such as travel sites, social media sites, and banking sites, and those sites are breached by hackers. Phishing, malvertising, and web attacks are also avenues credentials are compromised.
How can this be prevented? How secure is your network? Does your company use multi-factor authentication? Are your password practices up to modern standards?
