Dark Web

What is the Dark Web?

The dark web is part of the internet that isn’t visible to search engines and requires the use of an anonymizing browser called Tor to be accessed.

You can buy credit card numbers, all manner of drugs, guns, counterfeit money, stolen subscription credentials, hacked Netflix accounts and software that helps you break into other people’s computers. Buy login credentials to a $50,000 Bank of America account, counterfeit $20 bills, prepaid debit cards, or a “lifetime” Netflix premium account. You can hire hackers to attack computers for you. You can buy usernames and passwords.

Password Security

Here are some tips for better password management

  • use a password manager to create and store long unique complex passwords for everything that requires a password;
  • use multi-factor authentication wherever possible. A  hardware key or authenticator is preferred with a key being the best;
  • do not share passwords;
  • use a multi layered approach. That is, use a firewall that inspects all traffic in and out of your business to check for malicious content and activity, use EDR software on each PC, email monitoring, data encryption, mobile device security and management and engage in staff cyber security training regularly.
  • do not use default passwords on printers and other devices on your network;
  • use secure a VPN when on public wifi or to connect to your corporate network;
  • do not allow unvetted devices on your corporate network;
