Dark Web Monitoring Services for Businesses in Aberdeen

There’s an area of the Internet that is invisible to day-to-day online users. It’s called the Dark Web.

The Dark Web is a hidden space contained within the “Deep Web” – a sub-layer of the Internet that is invisible to conventional search engines. Search engines like Google, BING and Yahoo only search 0.04% of the indexed or “surface” Internet. The other 99.96% of the Web consists of databases, private academic and government networks, and the Dark Web. The Dark Web is estimated at 550 times larger than the surface Web and growing. Because you can operate anonymously, the Dark Web holds a wealth of stolen data and illegal activity.

Our service is designed to help organisations detect and mitigate cyber threats that leverage stolen email addresses and passwords. The research team uses a combination of human and artificial intelligence that scours botnets, criminal chat rooms, blogs, websites and bulletin boards, Peer to Peer networks, forums, private networks, and other black-market sites 24/7, 365 days a year to identify stolen credentials and other personally identifiable information (PII).

This service is quick and easy to setup, no matter what size your business is. Give us a call today and get protected.

Our Dark Web Monitoring Services

If you don’t have robust IT security measures in place, your organisation may be a victim of data breaches where important data from your business is stolen. From confidential company files to your customers’ personal data, these can all be sold and exchanged on the dark web.

Nimbus Blue offers dark web monitoring services for businesses in Aberdeen. Our services aim to be the beacon of security for important data in your organisation. From scanning data breaches to protecting breached accounts, you have everything you need to prevent hackers from stealing your data.

Our dark web monitoring services follow these steps:

E-mail accounts are usually hackers’ and cyber criminals’ gateway into confidential information from businesses. If you suspect that the e-mail addresses of people within your organisation have been compromised, you can turn to our monitoring services to keep an eye on breached accounts for further hacking activities.

As a part of our dark web protection services, we scour dark web forums and databases for breached credentials. From bulletin boards to other black-market sites, we look for stolen credentials related to your company. We immediately notify you once e-mail addresses have been detected in these databases.

E-mail addresses and other accounts that have been compromised need to be re-secured. You can typically do this by changing your passwords. The Nimbus Blue team can help you assess the security of passwords your organisation uses and improve their effectiveness.


Frequently asked questions

Any information that is stored on the internet could potentially be stolen. This includes e-mail credentials, personal data like name and address, credit card numbers, phone numbers and social security numbers. With these, someone could steal a person’s identity or access sensitive company information, so it’s important to keep data breaches at bay.
There are plenty of sites online that tell you whether your e-mail has been hacked, but they don’t tell you how. You can tell with dark web monitoring services. You can also see signs of it when your account has strange e-mails or if you receive unprompted password reset messages.

If you store information online or you don’t have a strong IT security for your business, chances are some of your information has made its way to the dark web.

If your organisation has ties with big banks, social media sites and e-commerce platforms that have been breached, it’s also likely that your data has been stolen.

Dark web monitoring does a lot to monitor and protect your organisation. However, dark web monitoring acts as post-breach security. If you want to prevent your data from being stolen in the first place, you also need a comprehensive IT security measure in place.

Nimbus Blue’s dark web monitoring services work by using both human and artificial intelligence to crawl through the dark web’s chat rooms, websites and bulletins and look for compromised credentials. We then help you secure related e-mail addresses and other accounts.
