Why personal brands must be protected
A personal brand is formed when someone’s popularity as a result of their activities increases within their professional community or extends to an even wider circle.
A personal brand’s key characteristics are its reputation and popularity. It is important that the reputation remain untarnished when a personal brand is being developed and when its reach is increasing. Being widely known in an unfavorable light may harm (and in some cases even wipe out) a reputation that took years to build.
Association with business projects
The personal images of top managers, media figures, and famous entrepreneurs become part of their visual identity and the reputation of their businesses. Threat actors abusing famous people’s images for fraud or deception purposes undermines the success of both the individuals in question and their business projects.

Internet and social media: Risks for celebrities
I do not want trusting individuals to be conned, especially by criminals who use my name in bad faith. I watched an interview about cybercrime investigations carried out by Ilya Sachkov’s team in respected media outlets. I received positive recommendations about the company so I reached out to Group-IB and was offered immediate help and a quick solution to my problem.Evelina Khromchenko
