Groupsense, a leading cybersecurity solution provider, has announced the launch of its new VIP Monitoring Service, which is intended to improve the security of high-profile individuals and organizations. To provide real-time threat detection and proactive security measures, the service makes use of the most recent advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The majority of businesses use DRPS to safeguard their brand, but they frequently overlook the fact that all employees, particularly executives, are a company’s ambassadors and thus contribute to its attack surface. Executives are prime targets because they frequently overshare personal information on social media and are easy prey for phishing scams and other online crimes.
Threat actors can leverage publicly available information about executives shared on social media to impersonate them or, in the worst-case scenario, learn about their travel, families, or other information that could lead to physical threats.
Kurtis Minder, CEO of GroupSense stated, “VIP Monitoring capabilities are becoming more essential as threat actors increasingly target individuals at enterprises because they are fallible or even because they disagree with their ideas or actions.
Threat actors can use the information they learn about executives to execute a variety of crimes, including fraud, account takeover and spoofing – all of which can damage a company’s reputation just as much, if not more, than a typical data breach.”
GroupSense’s VIP Monitoring service begins with the creation of personal profiles of a company’s board of directors, corporate officers, and other VIPs, which include names, addresses, social identities, personal markers, and more.
GroupSense will then assess the executives’ current exposure on the surface, deep, and dark webs in order to provide continuous monitoring of new and existing cyber threats. GroupSense also collaborates closely with company security teams to identify risks associated with travel destinations, as well as other physical threats to executives, their families, and key personnel.
GroupSense’s VIP Monitoring service is used by many enterprise clients, and it recently discovered negative social media posts about an executive client. The negative posts included commentary on the executive’s position at the company, as well as accusations of being a foreign country’s asset and of misdeeds in previous positions.
The main source of concern was a statement about the executive’s home address. GroupSense conducted a thorough investigation and continues to monitor for additional posts that may indicate a threat to the executive, which is extremely valuable to the client in order to keep the executive safe.
