What is dark web monitoring?

Dark web monitoring is conducted to help businesses protect their data by scanning the dark web for stolen information.

Selling compromised business credentials on black market sites is a lucrative industry for criminals, where that data can then be used to cause further financial harm through cyber attacks. Dark web monitoring tools can identify if data has been leaked or sold online, giving businesses the chance to change logins or fix vulnerabilities in networks before they are exploited by malicious actors.

FAQ

Is dark web monitoring safe?

One of the best ways to protect your data is through dark web monitoring. By tracking websites and content that are not usually accessible to the average person, you can gain an increased awareness of the threats your business faces. In addition, dark web monitoring can help identify compromised accounts or leaked data quickly, minimising the damage that can be done.

How does dark web monitoring work?

Dark web monitoring is the process of tracking websites and content that are not indexed by traditional search engines. Dark web monitoring typically relies on specialised software to crawl the dark web for specific data, which can then be analysed and acted upon as necessary.

What type of data is monitored?

The scope of monitoring will depend on the business and the type of data that they are concerned about. However, typically businesses will want to ensure the following are secured:

  • Credit card statements and information
  • Intellectual property
  • Financial documents
  • Employee information
  • Customer data

What happens if my data is found on the dark web?

Business data that is traded on the dark web can be used to steal identities or access company information. The damage that can be caused by compromised data can be significant, and it is important to take steps to protect yourself against these threats.

For instance, if your employee login credentials are compromised, changing emails and passwords can prevent malicious actors gaining access to your systems through legitimate portals. Reviewing security policies and introducing measures such as two-factor authentication or SSO can help ensure hackers cannot access your network.

It is crucial to educate your employees about online dangers to protect their accounts and data. In addition, regular training on security best practices can help ensure that your business is as protected as possible against online threats.
