Every day, hackers attempt to breach the secure systems of internet retailers, service providers, social media platforms and websites.
Yahoo, Facebook, Capital One, Uber, Evernote, Apple. The list goes on – all have suffered major data breaches in recent years, resulting in millions of personal and business data records being exposed to hackers.
The dark web is a series of websites and online services which are hidden from conventional search engines like Google or Bing.
A special web browser is required to access it, called TOR (“The Onion Router”). Like the layers of an onion, your visit to the dark web is routed through hundreds of layers of anonymous ‘proxy’ servers. This has the effect of completely anonymising you.
Not surprisingly, anonymity leads to criminal activity and a significant percentage of the dark web is committed to illegal activities including the distribution of stolen data or goods.
PurpleID uses unique software to securely trawl the dark web for your details being bought, sold or distributed.
We actively search for your business domain name (@mycompany.com) to pick up any of your data which has been breached recently or in the past.
Our scanner picks up all kinds of data, but most crucially any exposed credit card numbers, passwords and personally identifiable details suitable for ID theft. Even if a card has been stopped, remember that the card number itself can still be used to fraudulently verify your identity for a wide range of online accounts.
Once a scan is complete, we review the results and start securing any account logins or other details which are in circulation.
Get in touch for a free dark web monitoring scan and check whether you have suffered a data breach, listing any compromised accounts or data in need of urgent attention.
The cost of cyber crime in the UK is estimated to be £3.1billion per year. That’s over £100 for every single UK household, every year!
Of course, not everybody is caught out every year, so individual incidents usually run into the thousands or tens of thousands of pounds. We’ve all heard the stories – pensions being stolen, bank payments being fraudulently misdirected, house deposits being lost, fake invoices being paid.
Potentially save your business tens of thousands with a simple, routine scan.
