Stay Alert to Compromised Credentials with Dark Web Monitoring

asset-2Do you know if your CEO’s email username and password are being sold on the dark web right now? How would you? Eventually, you’ll find out when you have to prevent finance from wiring a hacker - posing as your CEO - large sums of money. Or, you may find out after finance has already fallen for a CEO fraud phishing scam and wired a hacker money… But if there is a way for you to know when your CEO’s credentials are being sold in the first place, you can stop the scam before it even starts. Well, thankfully there is a way you can do this. At CoreTech, we offer Dark Web ID Credential Monitoring to detect and notify you of compromised credentials in real time.

Dark Web ID utilizes a combination of AI and people to monitor hidden criminal chat rooms, private websites, blogs, bulletin boards, peer-to-peer networks, social media platforms, other black-market sites, and over 640,000 botnets. They continuously scour for stolen credentials and other personally identifiable information 24/7, 365 days a year and report more than 80,000 compromised emails daily.

Once compromised, credentials are used to conduct further criminal activity, such as data breaches of sensitive corporate information, or identity theft of individual employees. Also consider that people often use the same password for multiple services, such as network logins, social media, online stores and other services. This exponentially increases the potential for damage from a single compromised username and password. The sooner you know your credentials have been compromised, the sooner you can do something about it.
