Does the dark web scare you?
It should. This anonymous internet is a haven for illicit activity. Picture the computer version of a dark, damp, smelly ally governed by hackers and thieves skilled at exploiting the normal, everyday end user. Pat in accounting is the normal, everyday end user perfectly susceptible to the maize of the dark web. Poor Pat who unknowingly clicked on a link for a free pizza and opened the door to the 15-person insurance firm she works for to the dark web.
So how can a small to medium sized business protect itself? Knowing when an employee or business’s email and password data has been breached and is listed for sale on the dark web is the key to protection. Astute Technology Management has partnered with ID Agent to offer clients the most validated credential exposure data available. ID Agent’s Dark Web monitoring platform combines intelligence with search capabilities to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for an organization’s compromised or stolen employee and customer data.
Monitoring is great and all but what does a business do when the information is out there? Our technicians are immediately alerted to a breach or criminal “door opening” via IP address. Once alerted, our team contacts the end user so immediate action can be taken to change the compromised information. Ultimately, decent password hygiene and compliance are essential to the data protection businesses need to maintain credibility and financial security.
How much does all this protection cost? Compared to the cost of a breach investigation practically nothing! In terms of small to medium sized business monthly payments it is affordable and scalable. The pricing differs based on the number of monitored domains and end users. What about personal email? We can help with that too, especially for C-Suite execs and key target end users like the CFO, accountants and HR employees.
