Training Registration

Understanding the Dark Web
On Demand
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded on March 15, 2022

The dark web has the star quality and luster of a Hollywood movie, but in reality, it’s a den of inequity operated by the technically sophisticated. The more “Googleized” we’ve become as investigators and researchers, the less we understand what’s going on behind the scenes and how to operate in this nefarious world.

This webinar will examine the dark web, the channels used to institute private sales and exchanges, and criminal behavior. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the dark web—criminality, anonymity, counterfeit products, child pornography, and human trafficking; learn the directory structures of the dark web; and learn dark web languages like Tor and Tails and the lingo of this underworld. Training will include exploring dark web channels for content and finding the resources and specialized search engines for searching against dark web content. Field investigators will understand how to use Tor safely and effectively, while learning the vulnerabilities, and be able to conduct undercover online investigations on the dark web.
