Delving into the Dark Web

03 March 2019 | Events

On Monday (4 March), the Scientific Society in Windhoek hosts a public talk by Andrew Fordred titled The Dark Web, what is it? This talk is part of his Journey of the Hacker series.

Without the internet we would not be able to use email or communicate with family or friends, do online banking, conduct business and research, follow the latest news and numerous other online activities. We also know Google or other search engines can find us information about a topic of interest, plan our next overseas trip, find restaurants in a strange city, look up long lost friends and more.

But do we really know how it works?

Because below all of the above, there is another 96% of web activity that includes the Dark Web.

The Dark Web is hidden; it is the modern criminal underground, activist's communication channel and an area of intrigue which adds mystery to most Hollywood films.

Fordred's (mostly) non-technical talk provides an overview and real live examples of the Dark Web, how it impacts our lives through those annoying scam emails we occasionally receive, to the absolute lure of dangerous drug dealers and hit men.

Fordred served as an intelligence officer for the Crime Intelligence Service of the South African Police with the then Organised Crime Intelligence Unit. After leaving the police service, he held a number of corporate positions until 2007 when he started his own business doing forensic investigations, intelligence, risk management consultancy, court testimony and litigation support. He completed a forensic investigation degree focusing on forensic intelligence with a qualitative case study of the Cali drug cartels. Currently he is providing due diligence, intelligence and cyber security services to clients with emphasis on open source intelligence and the dark web.

Please note that this presentation is a repeat of one hosted earlier this year. It takes place at the Delta Primary School Rev. Michael Scott Street at 19:00.
