Your Data Has Been Compromised, Now What?

If you have been following our blogs this month, you hopefully have a better understanding of what the Dark Web is and how easily your credentials can end up there. With over 80,000+ compromised emails a day, other than education, there is no guaranteed way to prevent a security breach. Since a breach of data is somewhat inevitable, here is what we at Pendello Solutions are doing to minimize the damages which can be caused by a security breach.

When it comes to compromised data, speed is your best friend. The current mean time to identify (MTTI) a data breach is 69 days, and the mean time to contain (MTTC) said breach is 197 days. This response time is as fast as it has ever been but, on average, those companies who could contain the compromise within 30 days saved over $1million compared to those companies who took longer. As you can see, these compromises can be extremely costly, but quick detection and response can genuinely save your business. This is why we at Pendello Solutions take Dark Web monitoring very seriously.

In addition to finding any holes or insecure channels, our Pendello Team of Business Technology Associates use a platform to help us monitor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Cybercriminals do not take a break, so neither do we! We are constantly monitoring:

  • Hidden chat rooms
  • Private websites
  • Peer-to-peer networks
  • Internet relay chat (IRC) channels
  • Social media platforms
  • Black market sites
  • 640,000+ botnets

Within this monitoring, we are searching for our clients’ credentials and data but also for industry patterns so that we can stay ahead before these patterns become trends. We aim to always stay one step ahead to keep our clients more protected.

The business world is much more than profit and margin these days, and unfortunately, a breach in data has the potential to take away all that you have built. So if you would like to take a stance and minimize the damage in which compromised data can cause, reach out to our Pendello Solutions team. We take data security very seriously and want to help your business understand the dangers and how we can help you stay safer.
