The “Dark Web” is a part of the World Wide Web that requires special software to access. Once inside, web sites and other services can be accessed. Identity thieves use the Dark Web to buy and sell personal information. If your email address is there, criminals can potentially gain access to accounts associated with it. Scanning your email is a great first step to better protect your identity because it gives you the knowledge you need to act.
To help keep your critical business assets safe from the compromises that lead to breach and theft, we are offering a complimentary, one-time scan with Dark Web ID™ Credential Monitoring to see what might already been for sale on the Dark Web.
Our Dark Web ID Credential Monitoring detects compromised credentials in real-time on the Dark Web and notifies you immediately when these critical assets are compromised, before they can be used for identity theft, data breaches, or other crime. 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.
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. According to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), small and medium-sized businesses may have more to lose than larger organizations, because cybersecurity events can be costly and threaten their survival.
