“The knock on effect of a data breach can be devastating. When customers start taking their business elsewhere, that can be a real body blow.”


how we help

Early warning

Imaging you could measure your business's cyber risk in real time, anytime.


How likely is it that an attacker chooses your business for its next attack?


Cybersecurity budget

When it comes to investments in cybersecurity, a common practice for businesses is: 'Buy the best we can afford and let's hope it is enough.'


What if you could quantify your risk and not only measure your defences?


Protect your customers

Making sure your business or your trusted name is not misused to cause damage to your customers or partners is vital.​

Have you heard about supply chain hacking or scam web pages?



what we do

Cyber IQTM

Instead of assessing your capability to protect against cyber risks, Darkscope Cyber IQ looks for the risks you need to defend against.


We actually assess risk rather than look at the organisation's ability to defend. We believe that this approach to delivering a Cyber Risk Score is smarter. Virtually all other risk scores are benchmarking the organisation, which to our view is back-to-front when looking at cyber risk. We are looking for angry trolls!


Our Cyber IQ Score is the first global service that quantifies the cyber risk for an organisation by correlating internet, social media and dark web factors in real-time, anytime. Rather than focusing only on the organisation, it delivers a heartbeat of the external activity that an organisation has no control over, but affects its risk profile.

Cyber InterferenceTM

Utilising the same back end technology as Cyber IQ, Darkscope Cyber Interference Risk Score looks for the risks you need to defend against. 


However, the Cyber Interference Risk Score delivers more comprehensive results by incorporating supply chains as well as partner and service providers. The main score is accompanied by separate 5-step darkweb and partner grades so businesses can identify where their highest cyber risk potential originates from.

The online portal provides instant information via a dashboard, personalized reports and free configurable alarm setups. It also allows the customer to engage with Darkscopes Cyber Security Analyst team to get expert recommendations

Cyber WatchtowerTM

Cyber Watchtower uses an extensive network in the deep web to provide strategic cyber threat intelligence for organisations.
It can help to uncover cyber risks and protect organisations against threats such as:  

  • Hacking for hire

  • Cyber exploits

  • Software vulnerabilities

  • Stolen intellectual property, designs, or trade secrets

  • Stolen financial information

  • Stolen personally identifiable information

  • Targeted phishing and spam campaigns 

Cyber Watchtower uses a mix of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and human expertise to identify and separate the risks from the noise in the deep web.

Our AI's use deep artificial neural networks to find information and data that is hidden to conventional techniques. We simultaneously correlate thousands of sources to find indicators for ongoing or planned attacks, as well as customer related information or data


who we are

Darkscope is the first joint human and AI business with a dedication to developing, training and using artificial intelligence to make our human expertise better. With its own cutting-edge AI and Deep Artificial Neural Networks - DANN scattered over the darknet, Darkscope leads the world of cyber intelligence solutions. Darkscope is a New Zealand based organisation working across international markets to deliver real world actionable cybersecurity solutions.


Darkscope International, founded in 2018, is focused on delivering superior cyber intelligence to clients about nefarious activities being planned against them in the deepweb and darknet. With more than 25 years experience in Information & Cyber Security, Darkscope developed unique technologies to combine human expertise and artificial intelligence to deliver cutting edge intelligence services to protect our customers


Today's businesses have no way to determine their cyber risk. The only measurement used in today's risk assessments are the defences. The services we developed enables businesses to quantify their individual risk, gives them an early warning system and helps them to protect their data and information.


Our unique approach to combine 25+ years human expertise with cutting-edge AI and machine learning technologies enable us to utilise vast amounts of data every day. Some of our AI's are trained with more than 1.2 billion records or our CIRSTM which uses millions of records every day to calculate the current score for particular businesses, regions, countries, or industries.




cyber interference:explained

It's not just foreign governments interfering with elections that we need to worry about - cyber interference can be used to destroy a reputation or cripple a business, and we need to know when it's happening to us.

Using the cyberworld to interfere with business processes to steal critical and valuable information, or denigrate a reputation, is now the largest criminal enterprise globally. State-sponsored cyber interference makes the headlines, but commercial cyber interference is a US$600 billion a year serious criminal business.

It's the least natural thing to do - to change your thinking from something that is ingrained from years of behavioral learning to something new. The only reason to change my thinking on cybersecurity was that it was fundamentally flawed, and the consequences of those flaws have significant impact. Unlearning flawed thinking is hard. It means we have had to re-learn about what our industry is and does. 


What we learned is that what we call cybersecurity, isn't. Most often it is network security. Sometimes it's application security or information security. 



No one vendor, product or service can deliver your cybersecurity needs - here's why.

What is commonly called cybersecurity is derived from network, information or infrastructure security. These products and services are good at what they do, but what they do is only part of what cybersecurity is. In the modern war against cybercrime, they can only deliver a small part of what your cybersecurity solution needs to be today. When we look at what and where the risks are, 70% are external to your organisation. Of the 30% that is internal, 80-90% of this risk is your own people.
