Touchstone Security – Helping Companies Build World-Class Cybersecurity Programs Using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework


As security threats are becoming increasingly common, many organisations are partnering with a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), often in addition to their existing security program. MSSPs provide professional monitoring and management, protecting hardware and data from potential cyberattacks. A Managed Security Service Provider is a third party that manages and implements network security and other forms of security for organisations. Managed Security Services Providers provide structural security solutions against cyberattacks, including always up-to-date expertise in the latest cyber threats and appropriate solutions.

Dark Web Monitoring: In the seedy corners of the internet, on difficult-to-find dark web pages and deep web forums, identity thieves and cybercriminals can purchase and sell your personal details. Dark Web Monitoring scans the dark web for your personal data and notifies you if it is discovered. The dark web is different from the surface web because you cannot access these sites with a normal web browser or search engine. The dark web is a subset of the internet where privacy is cherished and criminal activity will flourish. Cybercriminals will meet anonymously on the dark web to buy and sell information illegally, much like two people meeting in a dark alley to trade cash for stolen merchandise.

Dark web monitoring from Touchstone Security offers your organization and employees; identity theft protection, real time threat intelligence and cybersecurity monitoring for all your personal data. The trick to protect against identity theft is to spot data breach vulnerabilities early on, before hackers get a chance to exploit them. Touchstone analysts monitor criminal communities on the dark web to obtain early access to breach records, allowing companies to reset compromised accounts and avoid account takeover.
