The Dark Web, the latest tech buzz phrase sweeping the Business Security scene, is unfortunately one more thing a business needs to worry about. Monitoring the Dark Web for stolen credentials is critical for businesses that want to ensure comprehensive security to their customers.

STAAR Tech Agent Dark web monitoring combines intelligence and advanced artificial intelligence search capabilities to identify, analyze, proactively monitor and detect your dental practice’s compromised or stolen employee and patient data.

Why worry? Well its simple, statistics show that almost 80 percent of people use the same or a derivation of the same password across every computer system they access. Rotating passwords and requiring password changes every 30, 60 or 90 days has very little impact in stopping this threat.

If your password requirement is to have a capital letter and special character, the next time you change your password, there is a 60 percent chance you will add a second number or exclamation point to the end of the new password. For example, the password “Dentalsmile1” will become “Dentalsmile12!” Even newbie hackers are able to download free and easily accessible password crackers and automated programs to test hundreds of combinations of your exposed passwords in a matter of minutes.
