Advanced Dark Web

A follow on advanced course for those delegates that have attended 'The Dark Web'.

With the seizure of the Silk Road in 2013; a website trading in hundreds of millions of dollars of narcotics, the world became aware of what is known as The Dark Web. An anonymous and encrypted section of the internet The Dark Web allows criminals and human rights activists alike to avoid the people hunting them. There are a number of key technologies that have allowed The Dark Web to flourish, from cryptocurrency Bitcoin to software that allows anonymity such as Tor. This advanced Dark Web course builds on the one day Dark Web course and goes into significantly more depth about how exactly the technologies work.

The intended audience is for those requiring intelligence or evidence from the Dark Web and those looking for more advanced knowledge of the theory behind the software. This will usually be those working in government or law enforcement though may also be in the private sector.

We don't currently have any courses listed for Advanced Dark Web, would you like to view all courses for Information & Cyber Security?
