Are your credentials for sale on the Dark Web?
Besides the popular websites we all know and access every day, there is a hidden side of the internet as well. The Dark Web - not readily available to the general public - is known as a hub for illegal activity to buy or sell illegal goods such as drugs, weapons, or stolen data.
With the ever increasing scale of cyber security incidents, it only makes sense to be proactive and check whether your data is up there and offered for sale.
- Dark Web Monitoring scans the web for any leaked personal data and sends you alerts, so you can take immediate action to protect your accounts.
BES offers Dark Monitoring through our partner Continuum. Continuum’s dark web monitoring service is unique in that it dispenses live alerts when credentials go up for sale, giving you and your users a chance to change passwords before a breach occurs. If you’re wondering just how soon attackers purchase credentials and subsequently breach networks, the current record under Continuum’s monitoring is 17 minutes.
Many dark monitoring services simply to a search once a month to see if any credentials on your domain have come up for sale. This sort of reactive approach isn’t best practice, as the lag time is too great for users to change passwords in time to stop a network breach.
It’s plain to see that a once-monthly scan of the dark web for your credentials is insufficient. Only live monitoring will serve a genuine cyber-security purpose for your business.
