Why Any Business Should Be Concerned About The Dark Web
When we perform a search on the internet, most of us search the surface web. This is where most of our web browsing and social media takes place. The deep web – initially developed by the US military – is an unindexed section of the web, with much more information available; however, is mostly encrypted. The dark web refers to a layer of the internet (below the deep web), which is also unindexed by search engines; meaning that any searches on the dark web will not show up in a Google search. All exchanges on the dark web are all encrypted and are all done from anonymous IP addresses, making it difficult to identify any users. Just as it sounds, the dark web is a place where some things of a darker nature take place. Here, people will trade or traffic drugs, weapons, people and information. The surface web only represents 0.04% of the information available on the Internet; whereas the other 99.96% of information is found in the deep web and the dark web. For this reason, it's critical to use dark web monitoring tools to really see where your information and credentials lie.
