Dark Web Assessment

Our dark web assessment is a comprehensive approach to detecting information in the dark and open web that may be able to be leveraged to launch a cyber attack against your organisation. Digital credentials, such as usernames and passwords, connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, digital credentials are leveraged by criminals. These credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web where it is estimated that over 50% of all sites are used for criminal activities. This makes it vitally important that you identify stolen data in order to protect your business.


Why Your Business Needs A Dark Web Assessment

The dark web is a hub of cyber criminals where your data may be being sold to those looking to make a profit off your business. If you have data, such as passwords and email addresses, on the dark web you could fall victim to cyber attacks. A cyber attack could be devastating to your business. Being hacked could affect you directly or the indirect consequences of a data breach such as fines could be costly. If a data breach results in the loss of customer data you may also encounter bad PR and a loss of customers. If your sensitive credentials are on the dark web your business is a potential target of cybercrime and that could result in dire consequences.


What Is A Dark Web Assessment

Thankfully there is a solution to help you mitigate your risk and avoid the costly consequences of becoming victim to a cyber attack. You can begin securing your business today with our Dark Web Assessment service which utilises automated intelligence as well as a team of experts to check millions of dark/open web sources. Our dark web assessment checks botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites and blogs, bulletin boards, illegal black-market sites and more to identify, analyse and proactively detect your organisation’s compromised or stolen employee and customer data. There are many types of data which may have been stolen and could leave your business compromised including:
