The dark web is a lucrative place where international cyber-criminals hang out anonymously to buy and sell your business credentials, amongst other things. It’s different from the regular internet we engage with every day – it’s not accessible using a regular web browser, the pages can’t be found via search engines and since all the traffic is encrypted, anyone using it does so without a trace!
Websites which are used by you and your colleagues are hacked every day. The data that is stolen from them – which usually includes email addresses, passwords and other personal information – is then offered for sale on the dark web. This data may be used by cyber criminals for spear phishing attacks, but the easiest way to exploit it is to use the email address and password combination to attempt to access other services.
If anybody in your organisation has used their email password or VPN password or some other company password on another website, you need to know if that website suffers a data breach and those credentials are available to hackers.
Our Dark Web Monitoring service will notify you immediately if we find any of your company’s email addresses on the dark web, and we will include the password (if available) so you can check it isn’t the same as the password being used to access your company’s systems.
There’s only one way to know if your business credentials are for sale on the dark web – with constant surveillance, but in all likelihood there are credentials that belong to somebody from your organisation out there on the dark web.
The Assign-IT Dark Web Monitoring service continual scans and monitors dark web activity to quickly identify and mitigate any security risks.
The cyber-criminals work around the clock 7 days a week, and so do we. We constantly monitor your business credentials on the dark web all year round.
With continuous monitoring, newly compromised employee data available on the dark web will be rapidly detected minimising the risks of a data breach.
We’ll immediately notify you if your employee email addresses and passwords have been compromised and are for sale to the highest bidder, before a breach occurs.
We’ll provide a detailed view of what was compromised – including any available breached passwords, so that remedial action can be taken to protect your network.
