CRIF launches early warning system to guard against data abuse on the internet
CRIF’s new SICURNET Business service monitors credit cards, e-mail addresses, websites and telephone numbers and warns of any abuse.
In Switzerland, the coronavirus pandemic has been the cause of a rapid increase in digitisation – but the current situation has also acted as a spur to the activities of cyber criminals. Computer and data-based criminality is developing into an ever-present threat to any business, regardless of size or sector, as evidenced by the increasing number of cyber-attacks.
CRIF now offers an always-on protection service on the internet to safeguard company information. This product is specifically aimed at business clients who want to prevent any illegal transmission of their data over the internet, and to protect themselves against reputational damage.
Companies register their business details (addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, websites, credit cards, EC cards, etc.) with our innovative early warning system, which then monitors this information 24/7 for identity theft and data abuse. The system constantly looks for any indications that the information is being misused. If the system detects a fraudulent assault on the data or discovers any of this information on the internet, it notifies the client immediately and in real time.
SICURNET also scrutinises the Dark Web, which is precisely where data thieves offer to sell the information they have stolen. Any abuse of data can therefore be uncovered at an early stage.
This web monitoring service costs CHF 159 for one year. It takes just a few minutes to register your data at https://www.mycrifdata.ch/en/order/myCRIFdata%20Business%20Sicurnet, and the search parameters can be modified online at any time.
