Policing the Shadows: Uncovering the Darkweb
Darkweb is a lifeline for many living under oppressive regimes. However, the anonymity of cryptocurrencies has led to a boom in cybercrime, and in turn, led darkweb to flourish. The darkweb is a marketplace for exfiltrated data from breached organizations, and it is critical for organizations to understand the myths and realities about it. Criminals have been able to successfully operate the "crime-as-a-service" model using darkweb and cryptocurrencies. However, businesses and the security agencies have been able to make very little, if any, impact. How can enterprises become cyber resilient, and how should law enforcement respond to this menace?
The session will cover:
- New techniques and approaches used to combat security threats from the darkweb
- How is law enforcement responding to the investigation process and adapting to online technologies?
- Establishing access: venturing behind enemy lines
