Hackers and cybercriminals launch attacks every 39 seconds, which is an average of 2,244 times per day, with more than 8 billion records confirmed to be compromised in the last year alone. While you can take every security precaution to secure your company’s data, it can just take one employee clicking a single fraudulent link for a data breach to occur.
As soon as cybercriminals have personal or company data, they will most likely attempt to sell it on the Dark Web – the underworld of the internet. That’s why we recommend getting a Free Cyber Security Checkup from Evologic. We’ll be able to tell you whether or not your privacy has been compromised and more importantly, how you can address the security breach ASAP.
What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is the criminal underbelly of the internet that houses information not visible to regular search engines. It is a network of internet sites that makes users as anonymous as possible by routing through multiple servers and utilising high levels of encryption. It can only be accessed with a specialised web browser.
This level of anonymity presents a very lucrative opportunity for cybercriminals to access, sell and exploit personal and company data for profit. Cybercrime yields in excess of $1.5 trillion in revenue per year, while Dark Web use has increased by more than 300% in the last 3 years.
Has Your Company Privacy Been Breached?
Very possibly. We have found that 90 percent of small to mid-sized businesses have some combination of email addresses, passwords or other PII data on the Dark Web. The risks and consequences of this exposed information are both significant and far-reaching and could be devastating for your business.
Relentless phishing attacks are on the rise, many of which contain malicious links to fraudulent sites. These sites are used to collect confidential information such as usernames and passwords, or to install malware onto a device.
If your employees use their work email addresses to access any of the following sites or platforms (plus many more), they could easily be targeted:
- Google Hubspot
- Office 365
- Commonwealth Bank
Check If You’ve Been Breached
If you want to find out if your information is for sale on Dark Web, or if your systems have been compromised, ask Evologic to perform a Free Cyber Security Checkup. This is a service we offer to customers by performing a Dark Web scan that looks for potential risks to your organisation. This analysis will reveal if any of your company or employee information is being sold off to the highest bidder.
We can also continue to monitor your company 24/7 so you get alerted as soon as your credentials are identified as being for sale on the Dark Web. Automatic alerts prompt urgent password changes to avoid hackers accessing more valuable information.
