Dark web monitoring is a cybersecurity service that involves monitoring and scanning the dark web for any information, data, or activities related to an organization or its employees that may pose a security risk. The dark web is a hidden part of the internet that is not indexed by search engines and is known for illegal activities, such as the sale of stolen data, hacking tools, drugs, and other illicit goods and services.

Dark web monitoring is the process of systematically searching and monitoring underground online forums, marketplaces, and other hidden areas of the internet to identify any compromised or exposed information that belongs to an organization or its employees. This includes monitoring for stolen credentials, leaked sensitive data, discussions about potential cyber attacks, and other indicators of cybercriminal activities.

Our Dark Web monitoring includes:

  1. Data Breach Monitoring: Monitoring for any stolen data or credentials belonging to the organization or its employees that may be traded or sold on the dark web. This helps identify potential data breaches and allows organizations to take appropriate actions, such as password resets or incident response, to mitigate the impact.
  2. Credential Monitoring: Monitoring for compromised login credentials, such as usernames and passwords, associated with the organization or its employees. This helps identify instances where employee credentials have been exposed or sold, allowing organizations to take proactive measures to protect accounts and systems.
  3. Threat Intelligence Gathering: Gathering information on potential threats or attacks targeting the organization. This includes monitoring discussions and forums where cybercriminals may exchange information about planned attacks, vulnerabilities, or exploit techniques.
  4. Incident Response Support: Providing alerts and notifications to organizations when their data or credentials are discovered on the dark web. This allows organizations to initiate incident response procedures, investigate the source of the exposure, and take appropriate actions to mitigate any potential risks.

The goal of dark web monitoring is to proactively identify and respond to security threats and incidents originating from the dark web. By monitoring this hidden part of the internet, organizations can stay informed about potential risks, take prompt action to protect their assets and sensitive information, and reduce the potential impact of cyber attacks or data breaches.
