Frequently Asked Questions

The dark web refers to a hidden part of the internet that is not accessible through traditional search engines or browsers. It is often used for illicit activities, where users can remain anonymous and transactions can be conducted using cryptocurrencies. There is a great deal of privacy and anonymity that comes with using the dark web compared to traditional websites, which makes it a prime space for malicious actors.

The dark web can pose significant dangers to businesses. Criminals operating on the dark web have the ability to access powerful information that can cause considerable harm, including data breaches and financial losses. Here are a few reasons why the dark web can be dangerous for businesses:

**Data Breaches**: The dark web has become a marketplace for leaked and stolen company data. If your organization experiences a data breach, there is a high likelihood that the sensitive information will end up on the dark web. This can lead to reputational damage, regulatory fines, and potential legal consequences.

**Sale of Hacking Tools and Services**: The dark web provides a platform for cybercriminals to sell various hacking tools, malware, and services. These tools can be used by attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in your business’s systems, leading to unauthorized access, data theft, or operational disruptions.

**Stolen Credentials**: Criminals frequently target individuals and businesses, attempting to obtain login credentials and user information. These stolen credentials can then be sold on the dark web, allowing cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to your company’s systems, networks, or accounts. This can lead to further data breaches, financial fraud, or even identity theft.

**Ransomware Attacks**: The dark web is often used as a platform for ransomware attacks. Cybercriminals can deploy ransomware that encrypts your business’s critical data, demanding payment in exchange for its release. These attacks can result in significant financial losses, operational disruptions, and reputational damage if not mitigated effectively.

Dark web monitoring services, like Bolster’s , play a crucial role in helping businesses detect and respond to threats originating from the dark web.

Dark web monitoring is a service that tracks and monitors the dark web for any instances of data breaches or stolen credentials that may affect your business. By monitoring the dark web, you can proactively identify potential security breaches and take measures to protect your sensitive data. Effective dark web monitoring tools find stolen or leaked information, such as compromised passwords, credentials, intellectual property, and other sensitive data being shared and sold among criminals operating on the dark web.

With cyber threats becoming increasingly prevalent, businesses need a proactive approach to cybersecurity. Dark web monitoring is an essential tool for identifying any data breaches or stolen credentials that may affect your business, allowing you to take swift action before any significant damage is done.

Businesses face a range of threats on the dark web, including the sale of sensitive data, hacking tools for targeted attacks, and ransomware attacks. These threats can lead to severe reputational damage, financial losses, and legal consequences if not detected early on.

Bolster’s dark web monitoring service uses advanced algorithms to scan the dark web for any instances of stolen credentials or data breaches that may impact your business. Our platform aggregates data from multiple sources and analyzes it to provide a comprehensive overview of any threats to your business. Bolster leverages patented machine learning and natural language processing so organizations can not only get an easy-to-use, intuitive, and consumable dashboard, they can also get risk level recommendations and see predict future threats.

While Bolster’s expansive monitoring and detection technology will identify and track threats that exist on the dark web, we aren’t able to engage with threat actors on the dark web to have your company data removed. Removing data from the dark web is complicated strategy because there is no way to verify whether or not a threat actor has been true to their word in removing that data. In fact, most companies have policies against meeting threat actor demands such as paying for decrypting ransomware.

Instead, Bolster helps you mitigate the risk that you can control by identifying threat data on the dark web, categorizing the threat, and giving your organization actionable insight into how to prevent that dark web data from further exposing your organization to risk of a breach. For example, if we detect a business credit card information is being sold on the dark web, we will give you the BIN numbers and allow your team to address that problem with mitigation strategies such as freezing accounts and/or sending out new credit cards to your impacted consumers.
