What is a Dark Web Scan?

A Dark Web Scan is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, a scan of Dark Web sites for any credentials identified as belonging to your business. The idea is to find credentials that have been compromised so that they can be replaced. Also, it’s important to know what information is out there about your business and employees to keep people from being tricked by phishing or other attempts to breach your cyber security.

The dark web is made up of communities. Some might be legitimate but an estimated 50 percent or more are used for criminal activities. When there is a data theft or breach, the Dark Web is where that data is posted or sold. That means emails, passwords and other digital credentials are available to criminal organizations looking to exploit them.

If you have never run a scan, you might not even know that your company’s and employees’ credentials have been posted there. That leaves you vulnerable. Internos offers a free Dark Web scan as well as ongoing Dark Web monitoring.
