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 – Using the same password for multiple services exponentially increases the damage potential from a single compromised credential and gives cybercriminals rapid access to your secure data.
Compromised Credentials are a Warning – The sooner you are aware your data is exposed on the Dark Web, the sooner you can initiate damage limitation actions. Once your information is on the dark web, you need to take fast and preplanned steps to close the gaps that cybercriminals are looking to exploit.
Risky Business on Your Accounts – Having your credentials allows a hacker to access your financial assets and records, bank accounts, customer lists, private and professional contacts, sensitive data, and permissions which become open doors to further criminal activity.
