What Brand Intelligence Means for Your Organization

Posted: 6th October 2020

Protecting your brand doesn’t stop at securing your network or systems. Digital risk to your brand stretches to the far corners of the internet, where threat actors, hacktivists, disgruntled employees, and other attackers use organizations’ own brand names against them — tarnishing their hard-earned reputations and causing irreparable harm to the business.

Types of Brand Attacks

Brand threats negatively influence customers and create financial risk for your organization. Threat actors carry out brand attacks in a number of ways, including:

  • Creating fake websites or typosquat domains, and social media accounts used to impersonate the organization or its employees for fraud and phishing attacks
  • Posting malicious content and false information about your organization and products on websites and social media platforms
  • Counterfeiting products and software and selling them in digital marketplaces and app stores
  • Accessing your customers’ names and data
  • Selling or leaking your organization’s financial account data and employee’s personal information or credentials
  • Posting proprietary software code on paste and bin sites
  • Mentioning your organization and announcing intentions to attack it on underground and dark web forums

To protect your brand, your reputation, your employees, and your customers, you need to effectively detect and disrupt these adversaries.
