Learn more about Dark Web Monitoring

ECI’s Dark Web Monitoring service, powered by SpyCloud, the dark web is continuously monitored to help reduce risk from account takeover, by alerting clients should their credentials appear on it. Through early-warning breach detection, proactive actions (such as automatic password reset) can be initiated to help thwart the threat actors' attempts to do harm.

Dark Web Monitoring benefits
By scanning the dark web for login credentials, passwords, and IP addresses firms can identify ongoing or past data breaches and mitigate against them. By identifying compromised systems, this enables the creation of action plans to protect your firm in the future, while safeguarding employee and client data.

Solution highlights

  • Address regulatory due diligence requirements

Threat actors don’t have to break in when they can log in.

When credentials are stolen, such as usernames and passwords, they can be sold on the dark web to the highest bidder. These credentials can be used to gain access to business and personal accounts with the intent of doing significant financial and reputational harm to firms.

59% of people use their name or birthdate in their password. Almost two-thirds use the same password across multiple accounts.
