The dark web is a hidden part of the internet that is not accessible through traditional search engines. It is often used for criminal activity, such as selling stolen personal information.

Businesses both large and small are under constant attack. For example, personal data of up to 5 million customers was stolen in the Royal Mail data breach in January 2023, including names, addresses, email addresses, and employment details. Other examples commonly include stolen data such as passwords, mothers maiden name, security phrases, etc, etc.

This data will be publicly leaked and could be used by cybercriminals to commit identity theft, fraud, or other crimes.
