What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is frequently misunderstood. It’s not an unreachable sinister place in the world, but resides on the same internet you and I are on right now. It simply is not found with most search engines and more importantly, it can only be accessed via special browser software. The Dark Web is often incorrectly viewed as synonymous with the deep web, an area of the internet that is not indexed by common search engines, for example, content behind a paywall.
The Dark Web is generally accepted as a subset of the deep web. The full size of the Dark Web is unknown, and its content is thought to be all nefarious, but that isn’t the case, either. While illegal activity is prevalent, many other sites that are dedicated to privacy reside there. In fact, the CIA hosts a site on the Dark Web. As a business owner, it’s reasonable to be concerned about your data being bought and sold on the Dark Web. A Dark Web observation and reporting service like i-Tech Support can help keep your company safe.
