How Did Our Data Get On the Dark Web?
Somewhere along the line, users at your organization created profiles using their corporate email address coupled with a password. This profile may have been exposed in a data breach, meaning hackers have taken the user’s name (their email address) and their corresponding password, and listed them for sale on the Dark Web. Now, unbeknownst to the user or the organization, that username and password may be used in an attempt to gain access to other profiles created, or worse… used to access your own Company’s network.
What is the Dark Web?
The Oxford Dictionary defines the dark web as "the part of the world wide web that is only accessible by means of special software, allowing users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable. It is where Hacking Groups and Ransomware Services come to conduct business. Many hackers sell their services and sell their data, either individually or as part of organized groups.
Once an organization's data is successfully hacked, that information likely ends up for sale on the dark web. They use existing user/pass credentials to hack into other domains, and other business services such as O365, Payroll Services, VPNs, Remote Desktops, Banking, VOIP, ERP, CRM, and Social Media.
