You’re super careful about guarding your credit card number. But it might surprise you to learn that your Gmail password is 3 times more valuable on the Dark Web.
Privacy Affairs recently published their Dark Web Price Index 2021, which gives us a fascinating look at how much of our personal data is for sale, and exactly how much people are paying. A quick browse through the list shows that a cloned Mastercard (with PIN!) sells for about $25, while a hacked Gmail account is worth $80. A $3000 transfer from your business’ stolen PayPal account can be purchased for $180. Your business’ hacked Stripe account with payment gateway will fetch $1000.
Protect your business’ data from becoming Dark Web fodder by using secure passwords with multi-factor authentication. Maximize your email security to avoid getting phished. And should worst come to worst, set up alerts with our Compromised Credential Monitoring so that you are notified the minute your information does appear on the Dark Web. AllSafe IT’s Safe Total is a multi-layered security solution that provides these safeguards and more.
