Your Business Credentials: A Hacker’s Hole-in-One
Digital credentials, such as usernames and passwords, connect you and your employees to critical business applications and online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.
What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and while there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of business credentials. Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late.
Why We’re All Vulnerable
Passwords are a 20th century solution to a 21st century problem. Unfortunately, usernames and passwords - the most common digital credentials used today - are all that stands between your employees and vital online services including corporate networks, social media sites, e-commerce sites and others. A good security practice is to use a completely different password for every service, but the fact is that nearly 40% of Americans replicate the same or very similar passwords for each service they use.
How to Protect Yourself
There is no single silver bullet solution that can protect against all possible attack vectors. However, you can still take steps to mitigate the most common forms of attack – statistically, these attacks are most likely to leverage passwords compromised on the Dark Web or human error due to insufficient cybersecurity training.

Antivirus & Malware
Everyday, companies across all industries are paying the ransom to retrieve their data from the clutches of malicious hackers.
Here are some things you as a business owner should know about ransomware.
Ransomware defense begins with an up-to-date operating system, an up-to-date browser, and up-to-date patches.
Here are some ransomware facts:
Ransomware is not malware - While ransomware is a form of malware, it’s definitely unique in what it does. Sprinkle in some ‘ransom’ and you’ve got a malicious virus that keeps your data encrypted until a ransom is paid (usually in bitcoins).
On average there are more than 900,00 ransomware detections each year Source: Symantec (use a graphic or graph to show this possible)
Ransomware is being spread not only to individual devices but also entire networks.
Businesses lose an average of $133,000 per year in recover costs following ransomware incidents. Source: Sophus (use a graphic to show this or some type of counter)
It can halt an entire system
(Describe what ransomware is, give statistics, tell what HD Tec can do to make you are not affected)
There is no sure fire way to prevent ransomware. What you can do is have a plan to to maintain operations despite a rasomware attack.
The most effective thing you can do to protect your network is to have HD Tec Solutions set your network up with a Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Solution. The business continuity ensure that if your data is compromised you have an alternative method of accessing that data and the diaster recover solution ensures you have backups(not sure this makes sense we might need to modify that statement, i basically wanted to explain what (BCDR) Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery here???)
Give statistics on how having a BCDR can save you from costly downtimes.
with BCDR 90% of customers recover from attack in 24 hours or less
without BCDR 60% of customers able to do the same.
