Cybercriminals use a number of ways to get hold of your information to sell it online. It’s then sold on the Dark Net. Here are a few of the illegal methods of data collection used by savvy hackers:

  • Spear Phishing: The hackers use social media to gather information on a targeted group. Then, it uses the same sources to con victims.
  • Executive Whaling: Top executives and administrators are targeted by efforts to steal money from corporate accounts or to steal confidential information.
  • Social Engineering: Malefactors use LinkedIn, Facebook and other platforms to learn about executives and other personnel. They can glean contact information, business deals and other details that are used to attempt to defraud other uses.
