Dark Web Protection
Attacks on networks may be inevitable, but proactive monitoring of stolen and compromised data allows you to respond to a threat immediately to prevent a major breach.
Do you know if your company’s credentials are or have been for sale on the dark web? Digital credentials, such as usernames and passwords, connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this very well and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the dark web. At Technali, we go into the dark web for our subscribing clients to keep you out of the dark web.
A few key statistical facts: 81% of hacking related breaches leverage either stolen or weak passwords; 60% of small to mid-size businesses will go out of business within 6 months of an unexpected cyber incident; 43% of cyberattacks are on small to mid-size businesses.
The dark web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and 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 even know it until they have been informed by law enforcement. Of course, by then it’s too late.
How does this happen? When your employees use their work email on third party websites, like human resource & payroll, email services, customer relationship management, travel sites, banking, and social media, it makes your business vulnerable to a breach. With our dark web monitoring, we can detect if your company is at risk due to exposed credentials on those websites.
By utilizing Dark Web ID™, a combination of human and sophisticated dark web intelligence with search capabilities, you are able to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for your organization’s compromised or stolen employee or customer data.
Attacks on networks may be inevitable, but proactive monitoring of stolen and compromised data allows you to respond to a threat immediately to prevent a major breach. Dark Web ID connects to multiple dark web services including Tor, I2P and Freenet, to search for compromised credentials, without requiring you to connect to these high-risk services directly and provides intelligent awareness of compromised credentials before breaches occur.
Compromised credentials are used to conduct further criminal activity. Employees often use the same password for multiple services, such as network login, social media, and SaaS business applications, exponentially increasing the potential damage from a single compromised credential. Limited visibility when credentials are stolen; over 75% of compromised credentials are reported to the victim’s organization by a third party, such as law enforcement.
Because employees are the core of any business, they will be the main target for cyber criminals. Making sure your people stay up to date with cyber security knowledge, and teaching them to recognize threats, is imperative to the security of your business. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and so should your approach to defense.
92.4% of malware is delivered via email and 90% of security breaches are inadvertent, unintentional, and caused by human error. Trained and aware employees are critical to securing an organization, and an effective, ongoing internal security awareness program can help reduce your company’s vulnerability, turning the “weakest link” in your cyber defenses into its greatest strength.
Security awareness training and phishing simulations go hand in hand. Phishing has become very sophisticated and almost undetectable, as criminals have found ways to make their emails as realistic as possible. Phishing simulations test employees on how they would respond to a real-life phishing attack. We can send these mock attacks at staggered times, avoiding the “prairie dog effect” where employees warn one another of the email, for the best measurement of all employees’ awareness. We’ll track which employees have clicked on a phishing email, who has given away their password and who has ignored the email.
Once a learning gap is detected, we’ll deliver interactive educational videos to the most susceptible users. These easy-to-understand, short and visually engaging training videos include an online quiz to verify the employee’s retention of the training content. Training can be delivered regularly, to reinforce the importance of every employee’s role in protecting your business.
