Are Your Company’s Credentials 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 — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.
A DARK AND DANGEROUS PLACE
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 know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
When your employees use their work email on third party websites, like the types listed below, 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.
- HR & Payroll
- Email Services
- Travel Sites
- Social Media
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS?
A managed services provider, like Intersection Technology solutions, will be able to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for your organization’s compromised or stolen employee and customer data on the Dark Web.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
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.
