For banks and financial institutions that are becoming more technologically based than ever before, cyber security is of the utmost importance. However, as banks become more advanced, so do hackers. Keeping sensitive data safe requires a proactive approach. SQN has partnered with Q6Cyber to bring you options that help keep your financial institution and your clients safe from even the most obscure cyber threats.
The Darknet and Deep Web
Darknets and the Deep Web are places on the Internet that exist outside of the world’s most capable search engine algorithms. Their purpose is to facilitate a great deal of illegal online activity, which most often includes trading stolen information. Identity theft, credit card theft, and debit card theft are among the chief concerns for financial institutions when it comes to these hidden places on the web.
The Deep Web is well hidden from the public eye under layers and layers of complicated URLs and password encrypted websites. It’s estimated that this portion of the Internet is even larger than the “above ground” Internet that is used every day.
How Does Partnering with Q6Cyber Help Protect Financial Institutions?
If your bank or financial institution was hacked or your security information compromised, you may be completely unaware. In fact, your sensitive data could be traded or sold on darknets or the Deep Web without your institution even knowing about it.
Q6Cyber uses threat intelligence and technologically advanced systems to detect potential malicious activity against your institution before it ever occurs. With early detection, many breaches can be prevented. In the event of a security breach, Q6Cyber’s Rapid Breach Response is to “accelerate discovery of an information security breach and act quickly to minimize damage and recover compromised data.”
