The digital era and rapid growth of online communities and social platforms have revolutionised how we communicate and share information but introduced a new level of threat to organisations that didn’t exist just a few years ago.
New forums and communities that exist on the surface, deep and dark web have granted easy access for individuals to trade data and information often undetected until it’s too late.
Human Reconnaissance (Human Recon) is a unique service that profiles an individual’s digital footprint using open source, deep web and dark web intelligence to identify online behaviour traits that could be a threat to your organisation.
Using a range of unique data points, our Human Reconnaissance experts can provide you with an entire digital profile on an individual including; social media profile, interactions with online forums, personal information posted publicly and compromised account information.
This new level of insight is helping organisations reduce their risk profile and exposure to unplanned costs and reputational damage, by alerting them to behaviours from individuals that may be knowingly or unknowingly compromising the organisation.
Human Reconnaissance is that extra level of insight and protection that complements our group cyber strategy. Previously this type of threat was a known unknown; we know we are a target like everyone else but had zero chance of preventing the event. We knew about it during and afterwards once the damage was done. This peace of mind helps us sleep a little easier at night knowing that we have done our due diligence and reduced the insider threat and know more about the people that operate in and around our company.
