Lately threat actors have been switching from the dark web to Telegram. One of the reasons for this is that several 'dark web forums' have been taken off the air bygovernments. With fewer marketplaces to offer their goods and services, online criminals were forced to look for new platforms to keep in touch with their customers.

Telegram is an easy-to-use chat app similar to WhatsApp, but Telegram offers more privacy because users can choose to hide their phone number. Within Telegram it is easy for users to get into groups and see what is happening there.

An added benefit of the shift to Telegram is that this application is relatively easy to monitor for illegal activity. Real-time monitoring of various (public) groups can help organizations quickly detect data breaches or malicious campaigns. By knowing where and in what context your organization is listed on Telegram, we at DeepBlue can take adequate and timely countermeasures for your organization

The number of messages, as well as channels and groups fluctuates due to the removal of false information and the ever-changing influx of data.
