Oh No! Your Dark Web Scan Results Made You :( Our Advice on Securing Your Passwords

The dark web – the place where cyber-criminals conduct their business anonymously. Some parts of the dark web hold the results of the data breaches of many of the websites that you used or even still use today. This data can be names, date of births, addresses, booking information, and worst of all (but not unlikely) credit card information and passwords.

Conducting a regular dark web scan is recommended. If you have conducted a scan and found that your email addresses and passwords are available on the dark web, you need to act immediately. Here are our recommendations on how to proceed from here.

What is Application Whitelisting?

Application Whitelisting is a higher end method of showing zero trust to your machines operating system, data, users and environment. This is achieved by allowing only the applications that we permit to run on a device, meaning unwanted applications cannot be installed and even better, malicious code is unable to run, as well as non-work-related applications. It acts as another line of defence against viruses, malware, ransomware and more.
