Baltimore's Terbium Labs offers a Lifelock-like service trolling the Dark Web for corporate data breaches

A Baltimore-based startup, associated with Johns Hopkins, can troll the “dark Web” for leaked corporate data for clients, according to a Washington Post story on Thursday, July 16, 2015, p. A15, by Andrew Gregg, link here.

The technology scans the Dark Web for “fingerprints” that match a client’s sensitive data, when being trafficked around.  However, the service appears more likely to be of benefit to large companies (to prevent leaks) and even governments than to small businesses or individuals.  It’s rather like a large company’s version of “Lifelock”.
The company is named after a rare metallic element terbium.
