Asia’s Premiere Incident Response Company, Blackpanda and Darknet Experts DarkOwl Strike Partnership to Enhance Cyber Crisis Management

Premiere Incident Response Company

Top US darknet intelligence company, DarkOwl and the digital forensics experts at Blackpanda are pleased to announce a partnership that will provide Blackpanda’s clients with expanded protection and detection of cyber risk.

Gene Yu, Co-Founder and CEO of Blackpanda comments, “Blackpanda is excited to partner with DarkOwl. Their extensive knowledge of the darknet and massive database of dark web content adds another layer of investigative intelligence, providing a better understanding of the incident for Blackpanda and the client alike to remediate the breach swiftly and effectively.”

Through the course of an investigation, Blackpanda has three primary objectives: to determine if a customer is under attack; if the customer is still at risk of an identical attack; and lastly, if sensitive data has been exfiltrated. By partnering with DarkOwl, Blackpanda is able to scan the dark web, as well as the unindexed Internet, for any private customer information that could act as a preliminary indicator of compromise, existing gaps and vulnerabilities, or any sensitive data being sold on dark web forums – essentially enhancing the answers to the three primary questions of Blackpanda’s incident response investigation. DarkOwl’s platform also allows for continuous monitoring for any future signs of a data breach.

The team at Blackpanda is hyper-focused on incident response and are the leading digital forensics and cyber crisis management firm in Asia. Positioned throughout the region and incorporating both Western and Asian business disciplines they offer their clients best in class cyber security. Drawing on the team’s military special forces background, Blackpanda maintains both the specialized technical expertise and client-centric cultural understanding necessary to lead our clients through crisis and beyond.

Adding DarkOwl’s darknet intelligence into the mix of their existing investigative tools is a natural fit” says DarkOwl CEO, Mark Turnage.
