Both in the news and in popular culture, media is increasingly referencing the “dark web”, that part of the Internet not indexed by web search engines and much harder to access. As part of the “deep web”, the dark web is generally understood to be for hackers and others wishing to browse anonymously. As the name suggests, however, there is also a dark side, including illicit activities and possible cybercrimes. In order to help our clients understand and mitigate any potential risks present with this technology, Fasken has partnered with Cytelligence Inc. to cover potential questions you may have with respect to the dark web, including:

What’s the Dark and Deep web?

  • Define the dark and deep web
  • Who uses it and what information is available

How Can You Protect your Intellectual Property and Market Value?

  • Do you know what your organization’s profile is on the dark web?
  • Cyber breach responses
  • What counterfeits products are being sold on the dark web?
  • Are there any enforcement mechanisms available?
  • Share cases that address IP theft, data breaches and the risks associated with M&A transactions
