DARK WEB MONITORING
Are your company’s credentials for sale on the Dark Web?
Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, online services, bank access, and confidential intellectual property. Criminals know this, so your credentials have become the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.
Your business is at risk from data traded on the Dark Web
The Dark Web is made up of secretive digital communities that hide in the corners of the Internet such that they’re not easily findable through Google searches. Security researchers estimate that half of the Dark Web is used for criminal activities, including the sale of compromised digital credentials. Rest assured that the hundreds of millions of accounts exposed in high-profile data breaches—and many you haven’t heard of—are all available for purchase on the Dark Web.
By whom? Organized crime, that’s who. Crime may not pay, if the saying is accurate, but cyber-crime is on the rise because it’s profitable, can be carried out from anywhere in the world, and comes with nearly no risk of getting caught. The FBI estimates that cyber-crime grew by 2000% in 2019 alone.*
Far too often, small and medium businesses find out that their credentials have been compromised only when they are informed by law enforcement of a breach. But by then it’s too late.
The solution is Dark Web Monitoring
Dark Web monitoring is an early detection and alert system. When compromised credentials from your monitored domain name appear on the Dark Web, our Dark Web Monitoring system notifies you immediately.
Your employees have likely done nothing wrong—it’s other companies with whom you have accounts whose systems have been breached in most cases —but it’s up to you to protect your business by changing passwords and closing unused accounts as soon as you’re notified.
