Dark Web Monitoring, also known as Cyber Monitoring, is a service that continuously scans, searches, and monitors the dark web for an individual’s or organization’s sensitive information. The objective is to detect and alert the concerned parties whenever their data is found being traded or shared on dark web forums, marketplaces, or other platforms. Here’s how the service operates:
Personal or organizational details such as email addresses, passwords, Social Security numbers, or financial information are identified as points of interest for monitoring
- Scanning and Monitoring
Sophisticated tools and techniques are employed to scan dark web platforms and other online black markets for the identified data points. This is done continuously to catch any unauthorized sharing or selling as early as possible.
Once a match for the monitored data is found on the dark web, an alert is sent to the individual or organization, informing them of the breach.
Some dark web monitoring services offer analysis on the found data to help understand the context and potential impact of the exposure. This can aid in forming a response strategy.
- Advisory and Recovery
Post detection, these services may also provide advice or assistance in recovering from the breach, including steps to take to protect oneself or one’s organization from further exposure.
- Preventive Measures
They may also offer recommendations on preventive measures to avoid future data breaches, such as using stronger passwords or employing multi-factor authentication.
Dark web monitoring services are often employed by individuals and organizations as a proactive measure to safeguard against identity theft and other forms of cyber fraud. By identifying compromised data early on, affected parties can take steps to mitigate the damage and secure their information.
