Has your data gone dark?

The dark web is often thought of as the underbelly of the internet. This hidden section that can only be accessed via a special browser to access. Its pages are not indexed by search engines. And it hosts a lot of illicit dealings.

It is, however, not all bad. 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. Or political activists use the realm of the dark web as a safe place for free speech.

Regardless of the positives, it is mostly a world of criminal activity. One of the most high demand products for sale is: data.

Could that desired data be your data? Your personal information? Your businesses information?

If you have ever had a company inform you they have experienced a data breech, it is likely your details are floating around the dark web. And if that is the case, it is only a matter of time until you are 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.

First and foremost, use a password manager to create unique passwords for all your accounts and apps. And use multi-factor authentication where possible, to add an additional layer of protection (this is where you generate a login code on another device).

Google has a cool tool called Password Checkup, that allows you to see if any of your passwords have been compromised. Check this regularly and follow any guidance on changing your passwords.
