“The emergence of a complex and multi-layered cybercrime economy has also begun to suggest a fundamental shift in the very nature of crime itself. In this context, overt acts of crime become less central features of the criminal ecosystem when compared to the services and platforms that feed off and support crime – which become increasingly low-investment, high-yield and low-risk operations.”

Dr. Michael McGuide, Into the Web of Profit

With cybercrime profits estimated in the trillions annually and illicit online marketplaces generating billions of that amount each year, understanding the Dark Web is now essential for law-enforcement, crime prevention, and intelligence professionals.

Given the anarchic structure of the Dark Web, following money trails and untangling criminal networks can be extremely challenging.  The use of high level anonymity tools and cryptocurrency within the internet’s underbelly can render criminals almost invisible or undetectable to police and security organizations.

A good understanding of Dark Web technologies and methodologies can provide investigators and intelligence professionals with unique opportunities to leverage complex criminal investigations, and harvest significant amounts of threat intelligence to their agency’s advantage.

This two-day, fully interactive webinar will a provide a solid overview of the Dark Web and will introduce attendees to the tools and techniques that are required to conduct effective investigations around the internet’s ‘hidden services.’
