The dark web is a part of the internet that most people never reach. It won’t show up on search engines and you’ll need a special browser to access it. However, just because you can’t see the dark web doesn’t mean it can’t hurt you. That’s where dark web monitoring comes in. Sytex.ca uses Dark Web Scan, a dark web monitoring service that scours the darkest crevices of the internet for any details that could compromise your company’s safety or your finances. Here’s why dark web monitoring is so important.
Checks for Compromised Credentials
Criminals use the dark web to conduct illegal activity. Hackers will often use the dark web to sell login credentials and other sensitive information. This underground business has become very lucrative – hackers have learned how to collect batches of login information en masse and sell them to multiple buyers for a huge profit. If your information ends up in the wrong hands, it could put your bank account and your privacy in danger.
If your credentials do end up on the internet, a dark web search will catch it before cybercriminals can do any damage. We scan for details like your bank account information, email and social media login, inter-company network information, and more.
Prevent Identity Theft
Identity theft is becoming increasingly common because of the dark web. If your identity is stolen, criminals could have access to your finances. Not only could you end up losing money, but this could also damage your credit score or even cause problems with the IRS. DarkWeb Scan continuously monitors the dark web for any personal details related to your company, your employees, and your customers. Your customers need to be able to trust that you can keep their information safe. Dark web monitoring is just one part of a robust online security strategy to do that.
Keep Your Systems Safe
Once criminals have access to your system’s login credentials, they could do some serious damage to your website as well as to your company’s internal systems. Many criminals will use information they purchased on the dark web to put malware or ransomware on your servers. This could dramatically compromise your productivity and your sales, even if you are able to recover fairly quickly. Monitoring the dark web for these security breaches can help you protect your systems in time.
Digital security threats are ever-present, which is why it is so important to have a digital security strategy that you can trust. Dark web monitoring services can give your company the peace of mind you need as your business grows.
