Join the Center for Digital Strategies in welcoming DarkOwl VP of Sales and Partnerships, Alison Connolly T’11, as she explains what is the darknet and why it’s important in fully understanding threats to your business.

Alison will also demonstrate DarkOwl’s Vision platform, a suite of products which allows you to search for leaked or otherwise compromised data in the world’s largest commercially available database of darknet content.

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.
