Your Credentials Are On The Dark Web!!

Published 22nd Jan 2020 by Shaida Khan

Cognisys Group Ltd have announced they are now partnered with Dark Web ID™.

Alex Martin, Business Development Manager commented, “We have found that corporate users are using their work emails to log into web applications that may or may not be work related. These same users are also using the same password across multiple platforms.”

Many web applications experience a data breach. Data lifted from these applications typically contain user’s credentials. Once the breach has occurred this information will find its way onto one of the many dark web forums. This is then made readily available for malicious threat actors to purchase. These malicious threat actors can then use this as a starting point in an attempt to access your corporate network.

Alex also stated, “The problem with that is there is no way to tell the difference between the trusted user logging in or the malicious threat actor.”

Dark Web ID’s monitoring platform is award-winning and combines human and sophisticated Dark Web intelligence. The platform provides search capabilities to identify, analyse and proactively monitor any compromised credentials.

For more information on which of your users have had their details published on the dark web or to book a demonstration please email and one of the Cognisys industry experts will contact you.
