Online Trade In Hacked Data
Director Sales at Gemalto, warns against underestimating the online trade in hacked data: A report on 600 million offered email access data is currently circulating, which is offered in the Darknet for less than it would actually cost. With regard to data protection, you should no longer use free email accounts. The data protection situation at the providers are opaque and therefore cannot be used safely, especially for official purposes. If you use such an email address, we recommend that you temporarily forward it to a suitable email address and delete it later. By the way: If you use such an email account for business, you have to conclude an AV contract with the service provider according to the General Data Protection Regulation.
Gemalto’s identity and data protection solutions enable organizations to take a data-driven approach to security combined with extensive control over who or what is accessing the required infrastructure and applications.
