Covert Imminent Breach Subscription (CIBS)

Christos Makedonas Christos Makedonas

CIBS allows you to see what information the hacking community has on your employees through an initial health check, and our subscription gives you the ability to identify new information leaks through ongoing monitoring.

The Challenge

In order to successfully reduce cyber risk, you need to know what security information is already available to cyber criminals that could compromise you or your clients, outside of your network perimeter. Keeping a watch on what is being traded on the dark web, and what data background software exchanges may be making freely available without your knowledge, means that you can take effective action to reduce your risk of either a successful cyber attack, or your systems continuing to leak sensitive business or client data.

Our Solution

CIBS continuously scans the dark web and deep web to identify any mention of your data, from breached security credentials (e.g. usernames and passwords) that could be used to hack into their systems, to instances where client data is being made available. Our system automatically adds over 3,000 access points per day and captures data that may only be made available for a matter of minutes or hours in criminal forums. This allows you to take action on information that has leaked, help qualify the cyber risk for boards and be seen to be proactively search for personally identifiable information leaks to minimise the risk of exposure under regulations such as GDPR. In addition to alerting on new data, you also receive a quarterly threat intelligence report summarising the trends and advice relevant to your sector.
