Identity theft is not a new problem – but one that has cost Americans a total of about $56 billion last year, with about 49 million consumers falling victim1. According to the 2021 Identity Fraud Study by Javelin Strategy & Research, $13 billion in losses were due to what Javelin calls “traditional identity fraud,” where cybercriminals steal personally identifiable information and use it for their own gains2.
The Dark Web, a subsection of the deep web, cannot be accessed via traditional search engines, but is hidden from view and can be accessed via specific browsers, The Onion Router and TOR being the best known. The dark web engages in criminal activity and poses a marketplace where stolen consumer data (breached account information and credentials) and other black-market goods can be purchased at a comparatively low-cost.
