Behind the Dark Net Black Mirror: Unpacking The Hacker Economy

Presented by

Dr. Mike McGuire, Kimberly Becan

About this talk

It is evident that the dark net supports a thriving cybercrime economy that poses a significant risk to the enterprise. However, most enterprises are not prepared to respond to the new attack vectors, and current forms of security and policing are often insufficient to deal with the growing threat. After months of research, Dr. Michael McGuire of the University of Surrey, in collaboration with Bromium, has published the newest addition to the “Into the Web of Profit” series – Behind the Dark Net Black Mirror. The new report highlights the developing relationship between the enterprise and the dark net and examines the risks posed by the growing array of illicit goods and services offered on the dark net – from traditional malware and remote access Trojans, through to more subversive forms of influence, such as corporate espionage, insider trading, and whistle-blower blacklisting. In this webinar, Dr. McGuire will: •Discuss the findings of his latest research •Talk about his methodology and analysis techniques •Recount his team’s most notable interactions with the actual vendors on the dark net •Share concrete recommendations on how enterprises can better protect themselves from the dangers that lurk on the dark net.
