Deep Web, Dark Web, Dark Net...what does it all mean?
On Friday, March 15, 7 p.m., join former FBI Special Agent Michael McAndrews for an intriguing and entertaining presentation of the more nefarious corners of the Internet. McAndrews' overview of the dark web, includes issues relevant to the average American as well as implications for industry and government.
McAndrews will explain how the Dark Web is accessed, how transactions are conducted and even take you 'live' to some hidden places where ransomware groups extort companies and individuals for more than $1 Billion annually. You will see how criminals sell items such as illegal guns, drugs, malware and even facilitate identity theft. Rest assured, he will be your guide and explain everything in a non-technical, easy to understand format.
McAndrews is a dynamic and energetic speaker who has been involved in Information Technology and Security for more than 25 years. He worked in the financial services, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries before joining the FBI in 2006 as a special agent. During his time with the FBI, he investigated numerous computer crimes such as intrusions, Internet fraud and intellectual property violations. He was also a member of the FBI’s Cyber Action Team, a group of selected agents who would deploy worldwide for the most critical intrusions. With experience in both the National Security and Criminal arenas, Michael left the FBI to rejoin the private sector. He now works as an expert in the field using leading edge security devices and performing awareness training to groups worldwide.
