After I give a presentation on cyber security, I'm usually mobbed by the attendees who want to share horror stories of having their business or personal data wiped out and held for ransom, or wire transfers redirected to a thief.

What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is a hidden universe contained within the “Deep Web”- a sublayer of the Internet that is hidden from conventional search engines. Search engines like Google, BING and Yahoo only search .04% of the indexed or “surface” Internet. The other 99.96% of the Web consists of databases, private academic and government networks, and the Dark Web.
