Business Dark Web Monitoring Services
What Are Dark Web Monitoring Services
Dark Web Monitoring is a service that routinely scans the dark web for places where information is bought and sold in order to find out if your valuable information is there. The monitoring company then notifies you if your information is discovered. Dark Web monitoring companies, like the ones Alexonet partners with, keep an eye on the happenings in the deep recesses of the internet to take care of this for you, giving you ongoing, proactive security.
What is the Dark Web
Every day, people around the world use the internet, yet the part of the web that we access is just the tip of the iceberg. This everyday part of the internet, known as the “Clear Web,” only accounts for a very small percentage of everything that’s online.
Further down is the “Deep Web,” which is the name for the part of the internet that has most of the websites and pages. The Deep Web is not nefarious, it is simply where all of the websites and pages that contain private information can be found. Information that is neither meant for the public, nor indexed by Google and other search engines resides in the Deep Web.
The deepest layer of the iceberg is called the Dark Web. Unlike the Clear Web and the Deep Web, the Dark Web is chock-full of illegal websites, chat rooms, and other anonymous communications. This section of the web cannot be accessed through Google Chrome, Firefox, or other popular web browsers. Instead, this part of the internet is accessed using a variety of special tools.
While there are certainly non-illicit uses for the Dark Web, the anonymity of browsing and communicating, unfortunately, gives rise to a lot of illegal activity, which has the potential to cost the average internet user a lot, and the average business even more, if their private information is found.
What is the Potential Harm
If you’re wondering where all the stolen information and data goes after a cyber security breach, the short answer is that it often goes to the Dark Web. Whenever you (or your customers) interact with companies online, you’re more than likely giving them your information. The information you enter onto websites can be something as simple as your name and email, or it can be highly confidential information like your passport information, your social security number (SSN), your credit card information, and other pieces of data you’d rather keep on a need-to-know basis. Be it through a security breach, unsecured networks, or brute force hacking, once your information is out there, it may be shared and sold illegally on the Dark Web.
