Business Risk Intelligence derived from the Deep & Dark Web
What is the Deep & Dark Web?
The Deep Web refers to the broad swath of the Internet that traditional search engines are unable to access, including password-protected web forums, chat services like Internet Relay Chat (IRC), file sharing and P2P technologies like BitTorrent.
The Dark Web is a subcomponent of the Deep Web that is not only inaccessible to mainstream search engines but only visible to users who have installed specialized software, such as Tor or I2P, enabling access to these regions of the Internet.
Many forums, websites, and marketplaces on the Dark Web offer highly anonymized environments to conduct malicious activities and purchase illicit goods and services.
Indicators of Context (IOCXs)
Identifying IOCs is only the beginning. Security teams and threat intelligence providers must start asking more complex investigative questions of the IOCs. The IOCX is essentially the missing half that answers contextual questions about the associated indicator.
The visibility provided by an effective Deep & Dark Web intelligence solution has a range of applications for teams working on both cyber and physical security, as well as a variety of other key operational components
Data and intelligence from the Deep & Dark Web can also provide new insights for analyst teams across other verticals, such as those working on reputation scores, cyber insurance, or stock trading risk signals.
