THE DARK WEB

Not Sure about the Dark Web?

A few years ago, the US Government launched a new computer  network which became known as the Deep Web, a massive portion of the Internet that is unindexed by typical search engines like Google etc. This was initially used by academic institutions and governments to house sensitive information but over the years, individuals started to use it within their criminal elements and it became known as the Dark Web. 

 

The Dark Web includes content that exists on 'darknets' - overlay networks  that use the Internet but require specific encrypted software, configurations or authorisation to access content. The dark web forms a part of the deep web, the part of the Web not indexed by web search engines.

A 'darknet' market is a commercial website on the dark web that functions primarily as a black market, selling or brokering transactions involving illicit drugs, cyber arms, weapons, counterfeit currency, stolen credit card details, forged documents, fake pharmaceuticals, steroids and  stolen Username/Password login Details for private or corporate users. 

Major breaches from large organisations like Yahoo (3million users); Uber (57million users); Equifax Credit (145million Users); AdultFriendFinder (412million users) and vitrually all the sociat medis websites like Facebook, Instagram, Linkdin, Snapchat have been breached and are the data source for stolen credentials (Username/Passwords) that appear on the Dark Web.​

The emergence of Crypto Currencies  like Bitcoin in recent years allowing anonamous payment and receipt of funds has fuelled the growth of the Dark Web and the explosion in its expansion and use by Cyber Criminals and Crime Gangs.

We provide 24/7/365 Real-time Monitoring

and Alerts for your Stolen Usernames/Passwords  listed "For Sale" on the Dark Web 

In Australia, we have direct access to our partner's database 24/7/365 and alert our Australian  Corporate, Government,  Peak Industry Association clients and  Family clients  -  in real time  - when one of their /Usernames/Passwords have been compromised. Compromised  Username/Passwords allow digital impersonation  by Cyber Criminals and can lead to untraceable attacks by criminal organisations on your Data, IP, Assets and Financial institutions.  The Real Time alerts we provide allow our Clients to close the access to these critical assets by re configuring their digital signature (their Passwords) before any damage can be done or any assets are damaged or stolen.
