What if every one of your employee’s email address and password was exposed on the Dark Web making it easy to steal company data and you didn’t even know it?
Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web. The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and while there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials. Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late.
When the companies like JP Morgan, Target, and Home Depot were breached, that customer information, went directly to the dark web and was sold.
We talk to small and medium sized businesses all day who don’t think they’re at risk, but having your company information exposed like this could be devastating.
You may not think this could happen to you or your company, but studies show that 1 in 3 small to medium sized businesses are on the dark web. Their email addresses and passwords are out there available for anyone to take. Do you use your email password as your bank password or have your banking info sent to this email address? This can affect much more than your company.
And once you’re on the dark web, it’s only a matter of time before your sensitive information, your clients and customer information is leaked and all of a sudden, you’re out of business. 60% of businesses fail after being exposed on the dark web.
