ISSA National Capital Chapter October meeting topic:

Mike Dombo


Today, it is no longer a matter of if an organization will be impacted by a data breach, but rather when they will be hit. In many cases, personal, proprietary and otherwise sensitive data accessed from a data breach is sold and published on what is known as the “Dark Web.” This portion of the Internet is hidden from conventional search engines and people who access the Dark Web typically operate anonymously, making illegal activity harder to detect.

OPM, Target and Anthem have proven that every organization is a potential victim. It has become increasingly more vital for organizations to take measures to keep their sensitive information from being leaked onto the Dark Web as there are real financial and reputational consequences to data breaches.

Mike Dombo, Vice President of Sales at Winvale, will discuss the Dark Web, how information is sold and traded and how you can take action if your organization is breached.
