As the cybersecurity industry faces multiple challenges, defenders and devious threat actors are constantly trying to outsmart each other. Every day hackers exploit stolen credentials for accounts, such as bank systems or streaming services. According to recent research, more than 15 billion credentials are in circulation in cybercriminal marketplaces, including the dark web.
Gathering data on possible digital threats is more relevant than ever before. In order to streamline security operations and mitigate risk, cybersecurity companies need to monitor numerous websites, harvest data from multiple sources and analyze large volumes of intelligence. While gaining a broader perspective of threats is especially beneficial, screening multiple targets can be challenging and requires prior knowledge and research.
