High profile is high risk
Cybercriminals leverage high-profile brands and names to capture the attention of potential victims. These attacks can include fake promotions and tickets, stolen credentials, or fraudulent goods. Netcraft’s advanced automation techniques can find and stop these attacks to safeguard your consumers.
Netcraft can initiate ‘phone number takedowns’ where victims are encouraged to dial a number to either resolve a dispute concerning a fake invoice, or for information about a scam promotional offer they’ve received. If dialed, the number will be answered by criminals in order to continue the deception.

A phishing attack is when a cybercriminal uses scam emails, websites or text messages to trick victims. The aim is often to steal money or acquire sensitive information (such as credentials).
Cybercriminals create convincing looking emails and websites that trick victims into providing their credentials (login details). These credentials can then be sold online by cybercriminals.
Netcraft automatically identifies hosting providers, domain registrars, webmasters and others, and determine how to notify them most effectively (via email, API, private contact, or otherwise). We gather and present evidence of the cyberattack to demonstrate the problem to those with the ability to take down the attack. Netcraft is also able to take down email addresses found in phishing kits that have been identified as receiving the stolen credentials.
