Have you been to the dark side?

 
The dark side of the web that is.
 
The dark web is a hidden section of the internet that you need a special browser to access. Its pages aren’t indexed by search engines and it hosts a lot of illicit dealings.
 
It isn’t all bad, though. Sometimes the dark web can be used for above board purposes. For example, journalists may use it to interview sources who wish to remain anonymous.
 
Regardless, the criminal activity there is huge, with a multitude of illegal items being sold. One of the other high demand products for sale is data.
 
Unfortunately, this could also mean your data.
 
If you’ve ever had a company inform you that it’s had a data breech, it’s likely your details could be floating around the dark web. If that’s the case, it’s only a matter of time until you’re targeted by cyber criminals.
 
While you can’t do much about your data being breached, you can stay a step ahead, and stop cyber criminals from accessing your accounts by:
  • Using a password manager to create unique passwords for all your accounts and apps.
  • Implementing multi-factor authentication where possible to add an additional layer of protection (usually by generating a login code on another device).
 
It can be difficult to navigate data security, so if you’d like some help, we’re here for you. You learn more, give us a call at 716-373-4467 x 15, email info@databranch.com, or fill out the form below!
