Why is dark web monitoring important?
Your digital credentials (such as your usernames and passwords for various websites and applications) help to connect you and your employees to important parts of your business.

Unfortunately, from time to time, these digital credentials can be leveraged by criminals and are among the some of the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web, where it is estimated that over 50% of all sites are used for criminal activities. If your cyber criminals have access to these compromised credentials, it can lead to stolen data, business or personal financial loss, and can certainly cause harm to your company’s reputation.
