Blog #3: Doctor’s Visit
I want you to take a second and imagine the thing you dread the most in the world. The thing that brings you the most anxiety when you know it’s coming up. Everybody has something. Got it? I bet at least a quarter of you thought of an appointment with your doctor or dentist. There’s just something so nerve-wracking about going to the doctor’s because you know that they’re going to tell you something that you don’t like. Maybe you need to exercise more. Maybe you need to change your diet. Maybe you need to get blood drawn. The thought of any of these options is enough to make a shiver run up your spine. So why don’t we just not go?
That’s pretty simple. If we don’t go, then we won’t know what’s wrong with us. If we don’t know what’s wrong with us, we won’t be able to fix it. If we don’t fix it, we won’t get better. Well, what if I told you there was something similar to a doctor’s visit that you’ve potentially been putting off? Something that may not affect your physical health but could certainly change your life if you don’t pay attention to it. If you haven’t figured it out yet, what I’m talking about is the dark web.
Cybercriminals use the dark web to buy and sell stolen information. It’s a scary place where a lot of illegal activities go on, but unfortunately, you can’t ignore it. It’s incredibly important to your and your business’s cybersecurity that you are constantly and thoroughly monitoring the dark web. You need to know if your passwords, emails, addresses, phone number, or even your SSN has been breached so you can deal with it before it becomes a problem. Not knowing whether your data has been breached is just as bad as refusing to go to the doctor because you’re afraid of what they might tell you. You can’t fix the problem if you don’t know what it is.
Luckily, we can provide constant dark web monitoring for you. All you’ll have to do is continue using your cybersecurity strategies and procedures as you have been, and we will tell you if any of your data has been breached. That way if a password or email has been compromised you can change it immediately. And if any of your other sensitive data has been leaked, you can contact the proper authorities. It really is that easy. You may not like what you find once you start dark web monitoring. Ignorance really is bliss. But ignorance also leads to data breaches that can cost you your job, your savings, and everything else.
When you’re sick or hurt, your body tells you, so you have no excuse not to see a doctor. But without dark web monitoring, you won’t be able to tell if your personally identifiable information (PII) has been stolen until it’s too late. Don’t let that happen!
