Criminals looking to buy or sell their illegal items have long depended on the black market to conduct their trades. With the evolution of technology, we have brought these markets to the internet. We will explore the different aspects of the internet, including the surface web, deep web, and dark web. The deep and dark parts of the internet allow criminals to exchange illegal goods and services, such as Silk Road.

This site was designed to buy and sell drugs anonymously. Cybercriminals are also leveraging the web to buy and sell their stolen data or cyber products and services. Understanding how the internet is leveraged for crime gives us a better understanding how to protect our institutions. We will also explore the types of cybercrime affecting financial intuitions and how to counter these risks.

Topics Will Include:

In this session, we will discuss the following:
  • Different dark parts of the internet
  • Buying and selling cybercrime
  • Cybercrime fraud trends
  • Advanced Cybersecurity Controls
  • Leveraging Information Security Programs
  • Education and Awareness

Join us in this session and we will do a live demo of the Dark Web.

Who Should Attend?

Information Security Officer, IT Manager, Risk Officer, Internal Auditor, Board members, or other management team members looking to explore the dark web and reduce cyber risks.
