12.45 pm GMT - Dark Web Intelligence: Past, Current and Future (Webinar)

Explore the dark web through the eyes of AI-research-powered intelligence. Resecurity Inc. CEO, Gene Yoo will take the participants on a journey through the past, present and what the future holds for security intelligence.


The global threat landscape is driven by a "shadow economy" generated by numerous Dark Web communities, underground forums and marketplaces. The $9.7 trillion global "shadow economy" is the second largest economy in the world after the United States - including cybercrime, financial crimes, weapons, drugs and human trafficking, as well as other types of illicit activities.

Dark Web is the key for bad actors, organized crime groups and nation-states collaboration to acquire the tooling and resources they need to conduct cybercrime. In the past, the majority of actors were present on various communities in TOR network, but recently began to use new digital and mobile channels to anonymize their communications preventing further tracking.

Today, Dark Web has comprised thousands of resources, and continues to revolutionize in scale and sophistication. That's why professional cybersecurity communities should stay up-to-date about it, and use proper tooling to continuously be aware of the latest trends and dynamics from the underground, making our digital world safer. The presentation will cover how Dark Web is changing and what new cybersecurity challenges we may expect in the next few years.
