This service is recommended for those who have are looking to discover what information is said about your business online, including any information that employees are releasing or if there are any damaging news stories, social media posts or associations. It is often used to help business owners, senior leaders, and executives to discover any information that could be used by cyber criminals to carry out targeted Phishing attacks.

Information gained from this type of activity may also be used by cyber criminals during early preparation stages of a cyber-attack. As such, this service will help you to understand if there is a poor online security posture that makes your organisation attractive to cyber criminals, in the same way that a burglar may walk down a road looking for anti-theft protection methods or open windows and unlocked gates.

For example, if an employee’s email address is publicly available online this is similar to a burglar finding a faulty lock on a window to your premises. Cybercriminals can configure the format of your companies email addresses and discover your employees online and put together the jigsaw puzzle. Once the puzzle is complete, the email address then provides an entry point for cyber criminals as they could use it to send a phishing attack.
