We’ll scan illicit websites for your compromised data and protect your company from future breaches.
Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect your employees to company emails and multiple business applications — that’s why they are among the most valuable assets on the dark web. Companies who have had a breach usually only learn about it from law enforcement, and by then it’s too late.
Our Dark Web ID Credential Monitoring can save you from such disasters. It detects and notifies you about compromised credentials in real-time before they can be used for identity theft, data breaches, or other crimes that will cost your business its reputation and profits.
Identity theft is any kind of deception, scam, or crime that results in the loss of personal data, including the loss of usernames, passwords, banking information, credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers and health ID’s, that is then used without your permission to commit fraud and other crimes.
Up to 15 million Americans and Canadians together have their identities stolen each year according to the FTC, and at least 834 million personal records have been compromised since 2005 through attacks on the databases of businesses, government bodies, institutions, and organizations. If those breaches were spread evenly across the Canada and U.S. population of 510 million, everyone would have had their identities stolen one and two-thirds times.
For some consumers, identity theft is an annoying inconvenience and they can quickly resolve their problems and restore their identity. For others recovering their identity can cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars, take months to resolve, cause tremendous damage to their reputation, cause them to lose job opportunities, even influence the rejection of loan applications for school, homes or cars because would-be employers or loan companies see the damage on your credit scores. Some consumers have even been arrested for crimes committed by someone using their identities and have had to prove that they were not guilty.
Consumers become victims of identity theft through many types of exploits. These can happen the old-fashioned ways when crooks (including family members!) steal mail from your mailbox, rummage through your trash for bills and bank statements, steal wallets and purses, or make an extra copy of your credit card – perhaps when your waiter or clerk walks off to process your payment.
Online identity theft occurs when users fall for tactics like phishing and confidence scams; or download malware onto their computers or smartphones that steals their information;
Use wireless networks that are insecure; take out money from an ATM that has been rigged with a skimming device that collections your information; share their passwords with untrustworthy people, or by having their information stolen when data records are breached on companies, government, and educational sites.
It’s been estimated that companies overspent by more than $207 billion on technology and telecom purchases each year, while the average enterprise is overpaying anywhere from 8% to 25% on software and hardware support.
