Cybercrime is a booming business – are cybercriminals making money off your stolen data?

Given the growing rate of cybercrime worldwide, it’s more than likely. According to a recent CIRA survey:

  • 70% of data breaches happen against companies with fewer than 100 employees
  • Only 19% of Canadians would continue to do business with an organization if their personal data were exposed in a cyber-attack

Is Your Data For Sale Online?

If you haven’t experienced a data breach, you’re probably confident that your data isn’t in anyone’s possession other than your own. But are you sure?

What if you were hit a few months ago and didn’t realize it? How long might your data have been online without you knowing it? If it is, where would it even be?

Is Your Data On The Dark Web?

When cybercriminals want to buy or sell private data, they go to the dark web.

The Dark Web is a small part of the much larger “deep web” – the common name for an extensive collection of websites that aren’t accessible through normal Internet browsers. These websites are hidden from the everyday Internet — or Clearnet — users through the use of overlay networks.
