Zenzero offering free search on Dark Web to find illegally available company data
The dark web is a part of the internet which can’t be tracked and is used for criminal activity from selling drugs to buying stolen credit cards. Users are able to remain anonymous through encryption software. Zenzero is offering a free search to see whether a company’s emails or data are being used illegally.
The financial and personal data and emails of individuals, companies and organisations would have been stolen through phishing attacks, hacks or malware and can be found for sale or are simply being misused – often without people knowing. Last week international security firm ImmuniWeb found over 21 million credentials on the Dark Web belonging to Fortune 500 companies, amid which over 16 million (16,055,871) were compromised during the last 12 months.
But this isn’t a problem for large companies only. Zenzero Cyber Security expert, Russell Howarth said: “The biggest problem is people have no idea what happens to the information they put into websites, whether that is the details of their credit card or their email address. So many of us give away our data without double-checking the site we are using is genuine. The same goes for opening emails and attachments.
“We are offering free dark web searches to everyone who signs up to our event because we want to support businesses and show them how to stay safe online. It can feel overwhelming but it need not be. If they discover their data is being used illegally through the searches we do then they can do something about them and we will show them how.”
The free workshop “Protect your business and reputation from cyber threats and generate more business” is being run at Zenzero’s offices at the Innovation Centre, Warwick Technology Park, Warwick CV34 6UW on 19 November 2019 from 11am to 2pm. A buffet lunch is provided.
The workshop is free for all businesses and organisations in Coventry and Warwickshire. To book a place click on register at http://bit.ly/330ACiQ
