How to use Data Breach Scanner for your company

Once you set up Data Breach Scanner with your domain, the results will be available in the Admin Panel within 24 hours. You can view breach statistics from the Dashboard.

These statistics include:

  • The total number of breaches, scanned active members, and scanned domains.

  • The total number of risks is separated into high risk and low risk categories.

  • A chart with the total number of breaches at the end of each month for the past six months.

Select "High risk" or "Low risk" to see an ordered list of all breaches to get more insights.

How are risks classified?

Breaches are counted as compromised data groups on a website - if one website, phone, or address gets compromised, we count it as a single breach.

 

A single breach can either be classified as high-risk or low-risk only. The risk level is assigned based on which data was compromised. For example, a leaked date of birth or company name is considered low-risk. NordPass regards high-risk data as:

 

  • Third-party systems API keys
  • Bank details
  • Credit card details
  • Passwords
  • Social security numbers
