MIDLOTHIAN, VA – Cybercrime is rapidly on the rise in the United States and SMBs need to know if their information is on the Dark Web. Sadly, it’s become commonplace to see reports in mainstream news whereby hundreds of millions of customers’ data has been breached by cyber criminals, that have successfully infiltrated networks and extracted sensitive data which inevitably leads to identity theft, corporate intrusion or any form of cyber abuse. Dominion Voice and Data has taken a proactive step forward to not only address this rampant source of criminal activity, but to put an end to its effect on SMBs.
While the Dark Web is not a household term, it’s poised to become one. The Dark Web is the part of the Internet that is “not Google-able.” The Dark Web forms a small part of the deep web, the part of the web not indexed by search engines. It attracts those who wish to act in secrecy, which usually includes those who are associated with illegal activity. It’s the best place to purchase illegal drugs, hire illicit acts or hire hackers to attack specific businesses. This is also where an organizations’ email addresses and passwords are put up for sale.
