Topic: Legal Issues in Information Security

Topic 1: A Roadmap to Internet CrimePresenter: Bill Curd

In a fast-paced talk, we will start with some quick disclaimers due to the nature of the topic, an overview of the Internet, how search engines work, some protections, and how tor works. Then, we will explore prominent Dark Web (.onion) marketplaces, where literally anything may be bought and sold -- how to access, search, and navigate there - but you will be warned against doing more than looking, and NOT shown how to do so safely.  Then as time permits, you will see some snippets of diving much deeper! Jihadists, malicious nation-state actors, and APTs. The talk will be redacted to PG-13 with minimal graphic images - suitable for high school and older who understand web browsing.
