KNOWLEDGE BASE

Dark Web Monitoring

What is Dark Web Monitoring?

Dark Web Monitoring proactively searches and closely monitors information circulating on the dark web. This involves identifying compromised or leaked data, including stolen passwords, credentials, intellectual property, and other highly sensitive information frequently traded and sold by cybercriminals.

Why is Dark Web Monitoring important?

It is important for businesses to use a tool to detect such information on the dark web, mitigating the risk of compromised data and exposing potential vulnerabilities. This proactive approach aims to strengthen the cyber security of our clients businesses.

What does Dark Web Monitoring detect?

Our dark web monitoring service provides essential visibility into compromised employee login credentials that may be circulating on the dark web and accessible to malicious actors. Through regular scanning, which encompasses domain monitoring, breach alerts, and detailed monthly reports, we identify specific business credentials available on the dark web. For example, we might discover that Sam Brown’s LinkedIn login details are present on the dark web, potentially sharing similarities with his company email address and a commonly used password, which could also apply to his Office 365 login.

Our comprehensive dark web monitoring tool ensures that organisations are well-informed, adequately protected, and one step ahead in the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats.
