Dark web reporting

Next Telecom

Cyber-criminals can make millions selling your data on the dark web

The dark web is a deep sub-layer of the internet that is hidden from conventional search engines. Operating anonymously, the dark net is the perfect environment for criminals to conduct illegal activity and handle stolen data. Anyone can buy your confidential information or credentials to ruin your reputation or gain access to vital business systems.

The dark web offers a vast marketplace for hackers to sell compromised business data. Hackers and scammers are getting more innovative and more efficient, your data has never been at greater risk.

Next Telecom's dark web monitoring scours chat rooms, blogs, websites, forums, and black-market sites on a 24/7 basis to identify stolen personally identifiable information or credentials.

What is Dark Web Monitoring?

Dark Web Monitoring is a new Next Telecom service which regularly searches the parts of the dark web where information is traded and sold, looking for your information. If your information is found, you get a notification.

This leaked data/information can cause personal/financial damage as well as reputational damage to an organisation. Finding the leaked data quickly can help you take preventative action and secure against future breach. Dark Web Monitoring is the best solution to prevent or reduce the damage from these attacks or data leak as it's a regular, thorough and provides real-time alerts to your system administrators.

What can you do to minimise the risk of this happening again?

Even the strongest and most complex passwords won’t protect you if they have been compromised and exposed on the dark web. Requiring users to verify who they say they are via two or more unique security factors will virtually eliminate more than half the threats and risks associated with exposed user credentials.

A password management platform will enable your entire workforce to adapt and thrive in a security-first environment while reducing password frustration and fatigue for users and empowering increased productivity.

Users continue to be the weakest link in security for businesses worldwide. This is often due to genuine ignorance regarding security best practices and a lack of knowledge or awareness of common threats and risks. Establish ongoing security awareness training for all users and turn your weakest link into your most robust security defence.

A comprehensive audit of your business infrastructure and systems will inevitably reveal vulnerabilities and security gaps within your network, applications or on your devices. Regular assessments will keep you informed and enable you to achieve and maintain a more preventative approach to security, often preventing issues or problems from arising in the first place.
