Dark Web Monitoring
We have recently just released our new managed Dark Web Monitoring service, this service is designed to help you keep a track of any company credential leakage. For example when you sign up to our service, you will provide us your domain name that you would like monitored (or more than one), we will then scan the dark web 24×7 for any credentials that are associated with that domain name. If found, we will notify you with the information, this allows you to identify any areas of risk, and if necessary, change account details to further secure the business.
The company credentials may have been posted on the dark web from data breaches, which have then been sold on for other criminal activities. Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.
It’s know that far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late. According to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), small and medium-sized businesses may have more to lose than larger organisations, because cybersecurity events can be costly and threaten their survival.
Why is it important?
Why should you look at having your domain name checked and monitored constantly?
- Compromised credentials are used to conduct further criminal activity, such as data breaches of sensitive corporate information, as well as identity theft of individual employees.
- Users often have the same password for multiple services, such as network logon, social media, online stores and other services, exponentially increasing the potential damage from a single compromised username and password.
Today, you have limited visibility into when your credentials are stolen; over 75% compromised credentials are reported to the victim organisation by a third party, such as law enforcement.
