Dark Web monitoring

What is the Dark Web?

The “Dark Web” or clandestine web is defined as the hidden part of the internet that cannot be easily accessed. More concretely, the “dark web” represents everything that is not accessible via standard browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome.

Due to the anonymity that prevails there since the data is end-to-end encrypted and the person’s IP address is anonymized, it is a paradise as much for hackers who orchestrate cyber-attacks as for drug traffickers, firearms and other illicit activities.

How to protect myself from the Dark Web

Many cybersecurity experts claim that most of the companies that suffer cyber-attacks are companies that had information to sell on the dark web such as passwords. Faced with the constant increase in cyber threats, companies must equip themselves with specialized tools to protect their data. Moreover, here is a list of elements that companies should consider:

Employee training and awareness

Importance of training and making users aware of security risks and data protection and confidentiality (password policy, implementation of multi-factor authentication, etc.)
