OSINT for Brandjacking
At its essence, brandjacking is a forgery. Bad actors forge a company’s digital assets including logos, websites, emails, domains, search engine ads, and social media accounts. These types of schemes can cause major brand damage in the form of lost business, lost customer trust, and lost data.
When it comes to cybersecurity, prevention is your best defense. Although there is cost and time investments upfront, there are several benefits to setting up a preventative OSINT strategy. Ongoing OSINT searches and alerts that warn of potential brandjacking incidents in the early days rather than when it breaks in the news can mean millions to your organization’s bottom line.
