Weekly TEK Tip: What is the “Dark Web” anyway? The “Dark Web” or “Deep Web” is a part of the World Wide Web we know and love that is ONLY accessible via a special software that allows users and website operators to remain completely anonymous and untraceable. That’s why it’s the playground for hackers and cybercriminals.

Because hacking IS a for profit business, there are criminal entities who steal, combine and sell personal information on the Dark Web, like passwords, social security numbers, bank account information and credit cards. There is a VERY HIGH probability YOUR information is being sold on the Dark Web – so how do you know?

Call us for a free Dark Web scan for your organization. You can also have us monitor the Dark Web so that when the login credentials for someone on your team are “for sale,” we can notify you so you can immediately change your password and avoid a breach. Also, be careful going to various sites OFFERING a free Dark Web scan. Many are scams designed to get your e-mail and potentially verify that your password is correct, where it’s active, etc.

Cybersecurity doesn’t have to be too overwhelming, expensive or complicated. The first step to protecting your business is understanding your risk. Have questions about cybersecurity or the technology at your company? We are here to help. Contact us for a complimentary Darkweb Scan.
