Among the years, dark web monitoring and how you can monitor it in particular for your own enterprise exposed credentials is one of the key topics.
For any digital breach attempt, you can not prevent it. Your enterprise system is as strong as your user ID and password. But if it already exposed credentials, then the story is different. This is why the exposed credentials got value in the eye from those hackers who may be interested to buy and use it for their cyber crime activity and other motives.
Cyberattack that stole and leaked employee credentials and company proprietary information is big business. The data leaks, breaches can take various forms. One of the most user-friendly ways to get in is to offer some sort of free application for you to sign up, and agree to all the terms and conditions. And make use of the link credentials to get the information from other credentials systems.
All stolen information from one source will open for another related source, from your birthday, social security number, credit card number or health records in an aggregate package manner and be made for sale.
Dark Web monitoring is nothing new, it provides around the clock alerting and monitoring for signs of compromised credentials, constantly scouring millions of sources including botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites and blogs, bulletin boards, illegal black-market sites; and other private and public forums, aim for getting visibility into enterprise own exposed credentials (emails, passwords, etc.) on the dark web. What to do next? Obviously it is upon detect and notify for it, make the immediate password reset and do not allow user reuse existing password.
It has been available for offer as monitoring for some time and in the market, and the latest new update includes the rise of external centric attack surface management (ASM), which will include it as one source of the complete solution.
All people who use digital internet for sure will leave something in various sources, you can use the free dark web scan with your own email address to see what can be discovered, it is use it aggregate the result so you can see and you know in what extent of your risk, and what important is from time to time change your password to make it moving target. And if necessary implement 2 factor or multi factor authentication, where simply just getting your id and password can not be used alone to make it harder to pursue targets. What is important is monitor and take note of the breaches site year and date to decide whether to immediately change password or what.
