What Is the Dark Web?
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 percent 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 know it until they have been informed by law enforcement, but by then, it’s too late.
How Does Dark Web Monitoring Work?
By using a combination of human and sophisticated dark web intelligence with search capabilities, dark web monitoring is able to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for your organization’s compromised or stolen employee and customer data. It looks at:
- Hidden chat rooms
