 What:                   Shedding Light on the Dark Web: Threat Intelligence Enabled Workforce                   

In the gloomiest shadows of the cyber world, an enemy has been permitted to grow and gain momentum. Over time, the Dark Web has become a vessel on which malicious actors have built empires by stealing and selling IP information from the largest enterprises across all industries. All the while, it seems we have been addressing this seemingly uncharted territory by asking all the wrong questions.

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?
