The simplest explanation you’ll ever read about what the Dark Web is.
Like so many things that have changed our lives, the Dark Web was also first created by the US Government. In short, this is a space on the web that can only be accessed through certain software or requires special authorization. This makes it extra secure. Content from the Dark Web doesn’t show in search engines, and “normal” people can’t access it. Which makes it the perfect place for hackers and criminals. Today, it is commonly used to accommodate the sale of drugs, guns and, you guessed it, personal data.
What we do to protect you and why we’re your best choice.
Dark Web audit and monitoring is a relatively new service, but certainly, one that’s gaining popularity these days. This is exactly why you should be extra careful with who you choose. There are companies out there who just want to ride the wave and aren’t as skilled as they appear to be in protecting your business from digital con-men. How to know whether they are skilled or not? First of all, they should be following a proven process to ensure your security.
Here’s our process:
Our proprietary artificial intelligence algorithm is designed to detect an already existing breach in your system faster than most similar products that currently exist.
>> We go deeper in our search.
>> We’re more thorough and don’t neglect even low-risk threats.
>> We have an extensive database that we’re constantly screening.
We Monitor the Dark Web — But Even More
While the Dark Web is a preferred location for trading personal data and stolen credentials, and we do monitor it constantly and extensively, we also use additional tools and technology to detect criminal activities that may be happening even outside of the Dark Web.
If a criminal community is targeting your industry, or your business specifically, we do everything in our power to know and react immediately.
Trained Employees Are Your Best Defense
Even if you can recognize a good phishing e-mail (which is an e-mail designed to look like it’s from a professional company where they ask you for personal information), chances are not all of your employees can.
While some of those are an obvious scam, others are executed so well and create urgency in such an emotional way that people often react instantly, without thinking. A good example is an e-mail from your bank or online payment system saying there’s been a breach in your account or something similar. Anyone who’s not trained to recognize this as a scam is easily susceptible.
And this is just one example. Your team is constantly bombarded with links, attachments, e-mails that sometimes do the job of stealing information automatically. Not just that, but they often use passwords that just don’t do the trick, sometimes on their professional accounts — and we’re able to detect that.
This is why we provide systemized, continuous training to your employees, plus we test them by sending phishing e-mails once in a while and evaluating their response.
