Only 4-5% of the web is observable and searchable. The rest is divided into The Deep Web which occupies about 88% and the Dark Web which covers about 6-7%! The Dark Web spectrum is varied and complex stretching from human trafficking, child abuse, suicide, and pornography, passing by spy, intelligence networks and hackers, to drugs and firearms gangs, identity thieves, black markets traders, witchcraft, and black magic.

This presentation takes a deep dive to understand this social phenomenon from a technical perspective and learn about safeguarding principles and practices, how you can protect your family and the community.
