Deep Web Intelligence reduces losses by proactively tackling fraud. By collecting and curating data feeds from the Dark and Deep Web, botnets, and malware networks used by cybercriminals, experts like us protect against financial and fraudulent digital crimes.
Using advanced AI algorithms and clusters of robots, we counter threats before they occur to ensure shortened time to mitigate or even stop the attack.
Identifying Threats on The Dark Web
The Dark Web contains all sorts of threat intelligence helpful in learning about how cyberattacks are performed, what tools criminals are using, and the success rate of the current campaigns.
However, the only way to gain access to such information is to understand the Dark Web and its inner workings thoroughly.
Who Is on The Dark Web?
Not every active participant of the Dark Web is a pro. Some of them put the “new” in “newbie,”
The main hacker categories found on the Dark Web are:
- Script Kiddies — With no little to hacking knowledge or experience, they use the Dark Web to find hacking tools and advice on how to conduct various cyberattacks.
- Proficient Hackers — They work alone or in small groups with a modicum of hacking experience. They may use it to buy and sell data about compromised user accounts or entities.
- Crime Syndicates — Consider these the organized crime gangs of the digital world. They run much larger scale operations than the proficient hackers.
- APTs — Advanced Persistent Threats are the most sophisticated hacker found on the Dark Web. Their years of experience and extensive knowledge make them subtler than the rest, often near-impossible to detect.
Types of Dark Web Intelligence to Collect
Dark Web intelligence allows us to collect all kinds of valuable information, including:
- Shop Talk — Cybercriminals use the Dark Web to talk about tactics, techniques, and procedures for conducting cyberattacks while protecting themselves. Shop talk allows intelligence analysts to match crimes to the criminals and ensure companies’ defenses stack up against the latest threats.
- Data Sales — Information stolen during a cyberattack (think user credentials, system access, and financial data) is often sold on the Dark Web. Finding the goods for sale can notify experts about successful attacks and the scope of present campaigns.
- Service Offerings — Product offerings (e.g., bespoke attacks, malware, tools) warn organizations of upcoming threats.
- News — Yes, like the regular news, but from a cyber criminal’s perspective. The information in these forums can divulge phishing pretexts, technological updates, and the focus of Dark Web actors.
- Underground IDs — Sometimes, information about specific users leaks out, despite the participants’ best efforts to keep it anonymous. Aggregating data like their aliases, contact information, and language can build profiles of prolific users.
