What: Shedding Light on the Dark Web: Threat Intelligence Enabled Workforce
Right now, the IP information of any given company could be at large and at risk on the Dark Web. The question is, what is the largest potential impact of this fact and how can we prepare? This panel will explore the often overlooked effects of the Dark Web on proprietary information, financials and acquisitions. In addition, it will discuss how organizations can and should leverage the Dark Web in order to better equip their security operations for every type of potential threat; no matter how far off the grid it may seem.
