You may have heard about the dark web and the risk of your personal information being sold to identity thieves and other cybercriminals. Personal information like social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank accounts, and associated account numbers have been sold on the dark web for years. Consumer products like credit monitoring and identity theft protection help protect consumers from dark web crimes.
Did you know, however, that sensitive business information is also accessible and sold over the dark web? Company email addresses, validation credentials, account information, and other important business data can be compromised or sold on the dark web. As a business owner, it’s important to consider adding a dark web monitoring service to your cybersecurity plan to protect yourself from a data breach.
