Cybercrime Protection

Protecting your organisation from the UK’s fastest growing threat

Criminals target organisations for the data they hold, to sell it on, use it themselves, or to extort money from them.

Organisations have a duty of care to ensure that adequate protections are in place to maintain data security and to deter and prevent crime.

A cybercrime or data protection incident can result in reputational damage, financial loss, and public embarrassment, as well as fines of up to €20 million from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

The dark web

Are your email addresses and passwords being sold on the Dark Web? 

Our Dark Web service has found compromised email credentials in every check we have undertaken to date.

Criminals trade stolen usernames and passwords on the Dark Web, often for as little as $2 each.  The stolen credentials are used to gain access to email accounts, hack organisations and commit cybercrime– a growing issue for organisations which is being publicly reported on an almost daily basis.

Part of Crowe’s Dark Web service includes checking whether any of your organisation’s email addresses are available for sale. Undertaking regular checks protects your organisation from cybercrime, enabling you to prevent a compromise using stolen credentials. 

Protect your organisation

Our Dark Web check is available as a one off or on an on-going basis. Contact Jim Gee, National Head of Forensic Services, if you would like to discuss how Crowe’s Dark Web services can help to protect your organisation from cybercrime.
