You don’t need to be afraid of the dark (web)

How can you protect your customers' valuable personal data from something you can't even see?  The Dark Web is invisible to traditional internet searches and IT security measures, and yet is a source of a host of cyber threats, including impending or completed data breaches that can greatly negatively impact the value of your company or investment.  The consequences can be dire: from loss of customer confidence to investors pulling out to receiving potentially hefty GDPR-related fines and other sanctions, the reality is that no business active in e-commerce can afford to turn a blind eye to the hidden risks that lurk in the dark web. 

TW:Detect is the latest cutting-edge tool we have developed as part of our cyber service to better enable companies to identify potential online threats due to cyber vulnerabilities that are invisible to traditional modes of monitoring. 

Underpinning TW:Detect is an innovative software programme that has been custom-built to scan the dark web to make visible to you any specific threats that are about to target or that already have targeted your organisation. 

TW:Detect can also test your e-commerce infrastructure for any certain specific threats of real-time credit card skimming, which can typically take some time to discover without the use of this powerful tool. 

Integral to our TW:Detect support is the guidance our client's then receive from our specialist cybersecurity and data breach response team, who together bring more than 15 years’ experience in helping businesses of all sizes with how to interpret the results of these dark web and clear web scans, and working closely with you to plan and execute either a robust cyber readiness programme that can incorporate future dark web monitoring in your arsenal of cyber defences, or guiding you through the crisis management of a response to a breach that has become visible through the use of TW:Detect. 

While TW:Detect can't prevent a breach or loss happening, it can give you the edge in an increasingly risky digital world by enabling you to see where hidden risks may be lurking.
