BALTIMORE, Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research analysts at Terbium Labs, the premier dark web intelligence company, today released a list of the most common activities seen on the dark web that indicate a breach, or other unwanted incident, has taken place.
Despite increased security budgets and better defenses, organizations are losing the battle against cyber-attacks. According to the 2018 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Overview by Ponemon Institute and IBM Security, data breaches continue to be costlier and result in more consumer records being lost or stolen, year after year. This year the report found that the average total cost of a data breach ($3.86 million), the average cost for each lost or stolen record ($148), and the average size of data breaches have all increased beyond the 2017 report averages. In fact, the costs of the largest breaches can reach into the hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. Ultimately, the inevitability of attacks and ongoing risk exposure of sensitive data has prompted organizations to seek new ways to proactively monitor for lost or stolen data.
The following top 10 list outlines activities, in no particular order, that take place on the dark web that organizations should be most watchful of:
