Are your law firm’s credentials available on the dark-web?
With an average of 158 accounts hacked every second, there’s a good chance the answer is “Yes.”
Why has this become so troublesome? According to ID Agent:
- 65% of people reuse passwords across multiple sites.
- 80% of data breaches in 2019 were caused by password compromise.
- Compromised passwords are responsible for 81% of hacking-related breaches.
Don’t become an unfortunate statistic. Let Vertex perform a free dark-web password scan to uncover which of your accounts have been compromised.
How do security breaches happen?
Compromised or stolen credentials and successful phishing attacks contribute to over 74% of breaches.
Compromised or Stolen Credentials
How do these breaches impact our law firm?
It’s not uncommon for people to reuse the same password across both personal and professional accounts. Although 91% of participants in a recent survey understand the risk of password reuse, 59% admitted to doing it anyway.
Once a password is breached for one login, threat actors will try that password for every other system.
Frequently Asked Questions
What information do you need to conduct the audit?
All we need is your company email domain. From there, our dark-web scanning tool will search out instances where credentials linked to your company emails have been breached and made available to threat actors.
How much does the audit cost?
Dark-web monitoring is something we provide to our clients to help them combat cybersecurity threats. For a limited time, we are offering to conduct these audits for free.
Does this audit give you full access to our passwords?
The report doesn’t actually indicate your full password but rather enough identifying information for your user to identify the password and make changes across other accounts (i.e. Pas*****123). We don’t keep any copies of your passwords, this report simply helps you identify where credentials have been compromised so you can make the required changes to your accounts.
What happens after the audit?
We’ll present the audit report to you and help you interpret the information. We’ll also share information to help you clean up the issues we’ve found, password security best practices, and more.
