The Dark Web, the latest tech buzz phrase sweeping the Business Security scene, is unfortunately one more thing for you as a law firm to worry about. Infoware Agent dark web monitoring combines intelligence and search capabilities to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for your practice’s compromised or stolen employee and patient data.
Why worry? Well its simple, statistics show that almost 80 percent of people use the same or a derivation of the same password across every computer system they access. Rotating password and requiring password changes every 30, 60 or 90 days has very little impact in stopping this threat. If your password requirement is to have a capital letter and special character, the next time you change your password, there is a 60 percent chance you will add a second number or exclamation point to the end of the new password. For example, the password “Scarecrow1” will become “Scarecrow12!” Even newbie hackers are able to download free and easily accessible password crackers and automated programs to test hundreds of combinations of your exposed passwords in a matter of minutes.
The Dark Web is ripe with stolen information, bundles of thousands of passwords, stolen in massive data breaches, small phishing schemes, or malware attacks are for sale to the highest bidder. The chances of a costly data breach goes up every second data is exposed. With Infoware Agent, you’ll receive real-time alerts when your data is compromised, giving you the power to stop a data breach right in its tracks.
Infoware Agent monitors, aggregates and alerts non-stop – 24/7, 365 days a year scouring thousands of sources including botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites and blogs, bulletin boards, illegal black market sites as well as private and public networks and forums.
With Infoware Agent, there is no longer a need to worry.
