Working from home brings new cybersecurity challenges

As companies navigate the transition to remote operations, they've discovered that doing business remotely brings new cybersecurity challenges to the table – and bad actors excel at finding creative ways to exploit those opportunities to strike.

By making mitigation of six significant risks a top priority, companies can quickly boost their defenses and avoid potential cybersecurity pitfalls as their employees continue working from home.

This week we continue with our second risk mitigation video; watching for trouble on the Dark Web

Risk #2 – Watch For Trouble (Dark Web)

Keeping an eye on the Dark Web is prudent as well because it's the most likely place for bad actors to get the illicit password lists, stolen logins, ransomware, and hacking software that are the tools of their trade.

Reams of sensitive personal and business data are also available on the Dark Web to bolster phishing attacks.

Dedicated Dark Web monitoring is a smart choice

Here at DTS InfoTech, we have partnered with ID Agent for Dark Web monitoring.

A quality Dark Web monitoring service can quickly get experts to hunt through the nooks and crannies of the Dark Web and discover if your company's data or passwords are in circulation, enabling you to prevent a problem from becoming a catastrophe.

Prevention is much preferred over a costly data breach.

Dark Web ID is a monitoring service that protects your company. We search the Dark Web and find out if the data from your company has been compromised, and to find out if employee data has been stolen.

This is a monitoring service you should employ, so you don't have to monitor the web yourself. For more information, click here to watch a short video on Dark Web ID.
