Dark Web Monitoring
We live in a digital age where highly sensitive data is stored in systems that most likely have vulnerabilities. In just 2018 alone, major companies such as Marriott Hotels, Facebook and Bitly have had breaches that have exposed millions of digital credentials and personally identifiable information (PII).
What is Dark Web?
The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that are only accessible via special software, allowing users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable. While there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials. 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.

Top 3 Reasons Why Monitoring for Stolen Credentials is Important
Reused Passwords Increase Risk – Employees often use the same password for multiple services which exponentially increase the potential damage from a single compromised credential.
Compromised Credentials are a Warning – The sooner you know about exposed data on the Dark Web, the less damage you will endure. Once the information is out there, you want to take the appropriate steps to remediate and close any gaps that could be open for cybercriminals to exploit.
Risky Business on Your Accounts – Your credentials can lead a hacker to your financial assets, contacts, sensitive data and permissions which can be leveraged to conduct further criminal activity.
