Dark Web Intelligence and Applications for Physical Security

Dark Web Intelligence and Applications for Physical Security

April 12, 2018, 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Sands 304 Level 1


In the last 10+ years the terms Dark Web and Deep Web have reached the mainstream consciousness. Silk Road, Alpha Bay, Dark Web assassinations, guns, drugs, organ transplants for hire. What is the fact and what is the fiction? In this talk we will go through the history of various Dark Web services and how they have affected individuals, businesses, and governments. We will review how these spaces both impact and can be utilized by physical security professionals - and what the future looks like.
The talk will cover the different types of systems to be aware of and what practitioners need to know about the risks they hold within the enterprise. Many of these systems prevent legal action from taking place in order to remediate risks poised by them. We’ll step through several use cases as to how risk can be reduced; drive down costs, and be pro-active in protecting critical assets against this vector that is typically out of view from traditional practitioner methodology. We will also go over monitoring strategies for potential risks to digital and physical assets that are at risk from dark vectors.

Learning Objectives:
1. Differentiate between the types of Open, Dark, and Deep Web services.
2. Learn how to sort through the “buzz” and analyze the types of services that offer protections for the attacker.
3. How to remediate different situations such as blackmail, leaked/breached data, and monitor for targeted underground/dark threats.
4. Best practices and approaches for proactive monitoring to lower organizational risk.
