Most people have never been on the dark web, for the very good reason that it is a haven for political extremists, money launderers, intellectual property pirates, and criminals of all stripes. But there are strong arguments for monitoring activities there.

- An overview and history of the Dark Web
- The emerging threats you should be aware of
- How security teams can identify these threats
- What you should do to counter the threats of the Dark Web
