Understanding and Monitoring the Darknet in a Data-Centric World

Topics: Big Data / Analytics Security

How do you know if you or your company have been hacked? Your information is for sale on the darknet. Do you know how to find your company’s compromised data? Users of the darknet do, and they’re more than willing to pay for it and use it to their advantage.

The websites we browse each day make up only a small percentage of the internet. These sites, collectively known as the surface web, are visible and accessible to common search engines you likely use daily. Beyond the surface web, the other 96% of online content is found in the deep web and the darknet.

Alison Connolly T’11 explains what the darknet is and why it’s important in determining if you or your company have been hacked. Alison demonstrates her firm’s DarkOwl Vision platform, which provides the world’s largest commercially available database of DARKINT. Unlike conventional offerings which rely heavily on manpower to comb the darknet, DarkOwl Vision automatically, anonymously and continuously collects, indexes and ranks actionable darknet data. By shortening the time frame to detection of compromised data, organizations can swiftly detect security gaps and mitigate damage prior to misuse of their data.
