The Dark web is a term you have probably heard before. It sounds like a scary, secret, and illegal part of the internet. That’s where hackers spend their time doing hacker-y things. What could the dark web have to do with you? What could the dark web have to do with your business? Here at Aspis, one of our specialties is dark web monitoring and this blog is all about why that is so important.
What is dark web monitoring?
Like most people, you have probably never gone on the dark web. However, that doesn’t mean that you’re safe. Through data breaches, anyone’s information could end up on the dark web. Remember that T-Mobile data breach (link to our blog about it) from a while ago? That is exactly how your information could end up on the dark web. What about if your passwords get compromised? Same situation. In fact, there’s a ton of information that regularly gets passed around on the dark web. This includes:
- Social Security Numbers
- Credit Card Information
- Email Account Information
- Bank Account Information
- Phone Numbers
- Medical ID Numbers
- Passport Information
This list could go on for pages and pages. In short, any important information about you could get shared on the dark web without you even knowing about it.
