This practical online workshop will reveal the secrets of the Dark Web, cyber criminals, and government-led hacking groups. Attendees will acquire knowledge, skills, and tools to search the Dark Web and analyze cyber threat intelligence. Additionally, attendees will explore how to leverage cyber intelligence on the web to proactively approach complex processes as due diligence and litigation documentation, and will learn how hackers use cyber intelligence to build advanced social engineering campaigns.

Hear from instructor Roy Zur about what this class will cover: 

Session 1

Revealing the secrets of the Dark Web—threat actors, criminal marketplaces, and technical components

In this first session, we will explore the main threat actors in cyberspace, including criminals, nation-state groups, and hacktivists. We'll review the layers of the Deep Web and Dark Web, and present how they are being used by the main threat actors in hacking activities and trading of commercial secrets, confidential data, private accounts, and more. We'll analyze the technical structure of the Dark Web and explain how to navigate through its platforms to find relevant information about our organizations.

Session 2

Advanced cyber intelligence methods—from advanced search methods to target profiling

During the second session, we’ll dive deeper to find specific targets on the Dark Web and create in-depth profiling reports of these targets based on cyber intelligence methods and tools. We will learn about advanced search methodologies, meta data analysis, hidden data tracking, profiling skills, and more. These skills will be useful for business purposes and cybersecurity measures alike.

Session 3

Avatars, chat bots, spoofing tools, and “fake news”

This final session will integrate knowledge and skills from the previous sessions to explore how hackers use cyber intelligence in spoofing scams, spear phishing, and social engineering attacks against individuals and organizations. We will learn how fake entities (avatars) are being created online, and how they are being used in cyber attacks and influence campaigns (using the Russian example of the APT28/Fancy Bear cyber team).
