Dark Web Services

Dark web monitoring

Trust, reputation and confidence.

Many people who have been burgled say they felt violated. The systems in place to protect them have let them down, and they will never feel quite as safe again. It’s the same for businesses whose data is stolen by cyber criminals. If this happens, you could lose money and your intellectual property could get into the wrong hands. But you may also face damage to your reputation, fines and legal action. If you don’t act quickly, your customers’ trust in your business could evaporate. So what can you do to protect yourself?

Protecting your business

Our dark web services help you to manage your business risk. We use state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated strategies to monitor the dark web in a safe, trusted way. This allows us to find out if your business credentials, data and intellectual property have ever appeared on the dark web. If it has, we can find out what information was stolen and whether it is still on the dark web. We’ll then set up a monitoring service to scan the dark web permanently for you. And when we find your data, we’ll tell you straight away. Together, we’ll agree what to do if we find your data on the dark web, because it’s never too late to act. Buying yourself the time to take action could make all the difference to your profits and reputation. Metro and our technology partner RepKnight are trusted providers of dark web services. We do the work to keep your business safe.

Your data and the dark web

Your business network is just one of the places where your data lives. It also lives on the networks of your suppliers and clients, on the cloud services your business relies on, and on your employees’ portable devices, like mobile phones. This spread of information through your supply chain can be a huge threat to your data security – a threat that’s not easy to control. The dark web is the hidden part of the internet, not listed by search engines like Google or Bing. This makes it attractive to people involved in illegal activities, such as selling weapons or drugs. And cybercriminals are now using it to buy and sell business data anonymously. Data is in high demand on the dark web. Sensitive information, such as passwords, credit card details, product designs and other intellectual property, fetches a good price.

Let’s get real.

From 21 August to 5 September 2018, hackers were inside the systems of a major British airline. They took the personal and financial details of customers who made online bookings during that time. That airline now faces a potential class-action lawsuit estimated to cost the company £500 million. In a hack that lasted more than four years, criminals stole the data of around 500 million customers of a major American hotel chain. These companies don’t yet know the full extent of the damage to their reputations or the fines they will have to pay. But the good news is that it could be a very different story for your business.
