Mastering Dark Web Threat Intelligence image

This is a comprehensive class presented primarily from a cybersecurity and investigative point of view and supported by real-world examples and incidents. Both the technical and non-technical alike will benefit from this class. IT and cybersecurity professionals, law enforcement, and investigators of all types will find that the skills gained will greatly enhance dark web intelligence gathering and investigations.

What do cybercriminals, hackers, military, the CIA, FBI, EUROPOL, INTERPOL, USSS, hitmen for hire, peace officers, private investigators, digital forensic analysts, cybersecurity professionals, dissidents, drug dealers, and whistleblowers (WHEW!) all have in common?

They all use the dark web and the anonymity it provides for one or more of these reasons:

  • Protecting personal information
  • Conducting investigations
  • Ensuring privacy
  • Gathering intelligence
  • Freedom of expression (or paradoxically, to censor it)
  • Covert communications
  • Conducting a growing variety of criminal activities, including:
    • Planning and executing cyber attacks
    • Corporate espionage for hire
    • Promoting and planning terroristic acts
    • Planning and recruiting for cyberattacks
    • Buying and selling illegal weapons
    • Buying and selling illicit drugs
    • Buying and selling child pornography
    • Buying and selling counterfeit currencies
    • Buying and selling counterfeit passports
    • Buying and selling secret/confidential information

With the increased popularity of the hidden services that the dark web offers and a user base that continues to grow exponentially with no end in sight, a variety of professionals now need to be dark web literate, with many needing to possess the skills necessary to safely and legally conduct investigations.

The information available on the dark web can be used to track data leaks, find out who’s been hacked and who’s going to be hacked, learn about new scams and fraudulent activity, and find out what company’s password database will soon be for sale. Military and tactical information can be found for sale and/or be freely available. These examples are the tip of the proverbial iceberg. On numerous occasions, your instructors used information gathered via dark web discussion forums to prevent identity theft and help mitigate cyber threats to organizations of all types.
