Deep and Dark Web Investigations 2018-05-01T14:44:29+00:00

Enhance your data breach response program

When a company is the target of a cyber-attack or data breach, time is of the essence to determine whether sensitive information has been made available online. Knowing where to look for compromised information, understanding how your efforts can expose your company to additional threats, and what to do once you find the data are critical next steps to mitigating risk.

Prescient’s Deep and Dark Web investigation services enhance existing data breach response programs with specialized investigative services to safely screen illicit hacker channels and help locate corporate information that may have been compromised. Using a curated collection of cyber surveillance technologies, Prescient’s analysts search hidden TOR services, Pastebins, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) networks, and other deep and dark web communities frequented by hackers and cybercriminals to potentially uncover compromised information.

Deep and Dark Web Investigation Benefits:

  • Enhance data breach response programs
  • Locate stolen data safely and efficiently
  • Mitigate cyber risks with data-driven, real-time decision making
  • Intelligence community analysis

Proprietary Security Measures

Without the proper protective measures, searching the dark web can expose your firm to even greater risks from hackers or other malicious organizations. To mitigate exposure, our cybersecurity experts have crafted proprietary security techniques grounded in Intelligence Community best practices. We customize these procedures for each investigation, incorporating multiple levels of encryption and redundancies to obscure the identities of our clients.

Custom Search String Creation

Using keywords provided directly from the client, our analysts build custom search strings that filter out irrelevant information and false-positive matches when searching the dark web for stolen information. These techniques enable efficient investigations and save crucial time when addressing a major breach

Deep and Dark Web Scrapes

Using a curated collection of cyber surveillance technologies, Prescient’s analysts search hidden TOR services, Pastebins, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) networks, ClearNet search engines, and other deep and dark web communities frequented by hackers and cybercriminals to assess the extent of information compromised in a data breach or cyber-attack.

Digital Marketer Identification

If your cybersecurity team watermarks its sensitive data, Prescient’s investigators can query for historical references to digital markers in deep and dark web sources that can help lead to the identification of any internal sources of a leak, discovery of external cybercriminal elements, or the recovery of key information.

Ongoing Monitoring

To ensure your firm is kept abreast of any sensitive information that makes its way to the deep or dark web, Prescient will perform ongoing monitoring of custom search terms and digital markers to facilitate a quick response if compromised data is detected

How others are using our Deep and Dark Web Investigation services…

As a complement to its technical data breach response, Prescient’s cyber intelligence team assisted a private university with deep and dark web research after it had suffered a cyber-attack. Using a suite of sophisticated screening tools, our analysts located compromised personally identifiable information (PII) for multiple employees and students at the university. We were able to provide the client with a roadmap for strengthening its cybersecurity measures and data breach remediation protocols.
