Dark Web Monitoring / Dark Web ScanningContact Us Today
The act of searching for and tracking your organization's information on the dark web is known as dark web monitoring or scanning.
Dark web monitoring tools function similarly to a dark web search engine (such as Google). These tools aid in the discovery of leaked or stolen information such as compromised passwords, compromised credentials, intellectual property, and other sensitive material shared and sold by criminal actors operating on the dark web.
Identity thieves may buy or sell your personal information on difficult-to-find dark websites and forums.
Is Your Company Secure?
Sometimes you won't notice something is wrong until it's too late, but there are warning indicators that your company may have cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Here are some signs that your business might be vulnerable to cyber security attacks on the dark web.
- You don't have a Cyber Security Strategy.
- You are using an old operating system.
- Your data is not backed up properly.
- Your team uses their own devices for work purposes.
- Your systems seem to be getting slower, or your internet keeps dropping in and out.
Sometimes one of the signs that you’re exposed to cyber security threats is that things just don’t feel right. Sure, your software might gradually get slower over time, but if there seems to be a sudden change in its performance, then it might be a sign that it’s time to reach out to our professional team for support.
What Is the Dark Web?
The dark web is the World Wide Web content on darknets: overlay networks that use the Internet but require specific software, configurations, or authorization to access. Through the dark web, private computer networks can communicate and conduct business anonymously without divulging identifying information, such as a user's location.
Cybercriminals can be found on the dark web using anonymity to conduct illegal businesses such as selling personal information - compromised credentials, email addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other types of personal data and financial information can all be bought and sold.
If you have ever been a data breach victim, your sensitive information might be stored on the Dark Web. If your information is available, thieves may be able to exploit it to perpetrate fraud.
Why Your Company Needs a Dark Web Scanner
The dark web is home to many criminal activities—including a myriad of cybercrime services that can irrevocably harm your business.
When a dark web scan is performed as part of your cybersecurity services, your data security provider can detect threats attempting to infiltrate your network. The dark web scan is an intuitive scanning protocol that utilizes AI to perform deep scans of chat rooms, forums, blogs, and other private sites that proliferate on the dark web, seeking and finding any information that may have been stolen from your organization.
Dark web scanning keeps your company's data contained and prevents further security breaches, reducing the risks of identity theft and other fraudulent activity.
Identify Cybersecurity Threats to Your Company
Is your business vulnerable to cyber security threats? It’s time to start identifying cybersecurity risks in your network. Dark web mentoring helps you to identify cybersecurity threats to your company.
Cybersecurity and breach incidents often result from improperly secured systems and a lack of user education and awareness. You can often prevent them with a more stringent cybersecurity strategy.
Cybersecurity threats are identified through a risk assessment. These assessments identify vulnerabilities, estimate cyber security threats, and prioritize operations based on risk levels.
Uncover Any Exposed Business Credentials
If you suspect your organization’s corporate credentials have been exposed on the dark web, you can run a scan. Data breaches happen constantly, so you must monitor the dark web continuously.
The benefit of dark web monitoring is that it identifies exposed data and the amount of time that your data is exposed.
Dark web monitoring tools scan the dark web on your behalf, notifying you as soon as they come across any compromised credentials for sale that belong to your company. Dark web alerts should give you enough time to act before threat actors use your organization’s login details for malicious purposes.
By actively monitoring the dark web at all times and mitigating exposed assets or identities, these tools give cybercriminals less time to exploit your confidential information, preventing further information leaks because you addressed them quickly.
Secure Your Company's Brand
Dark web monitoring services are essential to have for your company. Below are six steps every business can and should take to ensure their company's brand remains secure.
- Use unique passwords for all accounts and systems: The first step in keeping any organization safe is communicating to employees the importance of using different passwords for different accounts and systems.
- Replace all passwords regularly: Passwords should be changed periodically to guarantee that even if your organization's corporate credentials surface on the dark web, they are no longer "fresh" and less helpful to hackers.
- Enable a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): MFA provides an additional layer of security, making it much more difficult for fraudsters to log in as someone else.
- Provide safety awareness training to your employees: Employee education on cyber dangers and how to detect them is crucial to mitigating attacks.
