To do business online, digital credentials, like usernames and passwords, are necessary to connect businesses with their customers and employees through critical business applications and web sites. Criminals know this and the value of this confidential data. Once they steal this information from your system, they sell it on the Dark Web.
The Dark Web is the part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible by means of special software, allowing users and web site operators to remain anonymous or untraceable. Why do these individuals want to remain anonymous? Because they sell the information they steal from your network to individuals who want to profit from that compromised data.
Some examples of information sold on the Dark Web are:
- Customer and employee personal identifiable information including email addresses, phone numbers, and addresses
- Credit card numbers
- Corporate secrets
- Login IDs, passwords and access codes.
But one of the most notorious practices of buyers of your confidential data on the Dark Web is impersonating your business through email communications and look-alike web sites. Having your business impersonated poses a danger to your customers, who may be tricked into providing these criminals additional personal identifiable and financial information.
Users often have the same password for multiple services, such as network logon, social media, online stores and other services, exponentially increasing the potential damage from a single compromised username and password. Once criminals buy information stolen from your business, they may obtain access to your customers’ and employees’ accounts with other businesses and social networks. When the authorities discover such information was stolen and sold on the Dark Web, your business’ reputation will be tremendously damaged and customers will no longer feel safe doing business with you.
Compromised credentials are used to conduct criminal activity, such as data breaches of sensitive corporate information, as well as identity theft of individual employees.
Today, you have limited visibility into when your credentials are stolen; over 75% compromised credentials are reported to the victim organization by a third party, such as law enforcement.
