Are Your Business Credentials for Sale on the Internet?
The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet. 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.
Many employees, when connecting to non business web sites, will use their business email and password so it is easy to remember. Unfortunately, if any of these sites are compromised, criminals will have a possible path to your site from your employees email. Compromised credentials are used to conduct data breaches of sensitive corporate information, erroneous emails from the business owner asking to transfer funds to unknown suppliers. That is why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets for sale on the Dark Web.
The Credentials May Not Show Up Immediately After the Breach
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 usually too late. In many situations, the credentials stolen do not show up on the dark web for weeks after the breach, giving users a false sense of security.
