Safeguarding SLED: Unveiling Dark Web Fraud Threats

By Editorial Team on Feb 21, 2024 1:47:34 PM

According to a report by the Identity Theft Resource Center, the government and education sectors accounted for 12.3% of all reported data breaches in 2020. Increased connectivity has benefitted state and local government and education (SLED) since its inception, increasing efficiency, information sharing, and more. As the internet has developed and threat actors become more savvy, it has introduced more risk to state and local organizations. The dark web, also known as the hidden internet, is a part of the internet that is not indexed by traditional search engines. It is estimated that the dark web is 500 times larger than the surface web, making it a haven for illegal activities such as fraud and cyber crime.

Ransomware Negotiation Guide

By Editorial Team on Mar 1, 2022 10:07:00 AM
