Combating the Dark Web
- Registration Closed
Hey, you . . . want to buy a Credit Card number? How about a Social Security Number? Yes, AlphaBay and Hansa are gone, but many other dark websites still remain. Information and products available on the dark web are continuously growing and with the increased number of data breaches in the past few years, more personal information is bound to end up for sale. In this session, we will demonstrate the ugly side of electronic commerce on the dark web as we take you on a journey where you can buy debit card data, bank account data, and counterfeit currency. Becoming aware of these sites will help your team educate employees, conduct research into potential illegal activity, and complete better due diligence on customers and Third-Party Payment Processors.
