An EEMA High Level Fireside Briefing

It’s only a matter of time – The Air Traffic Control System, Highways Agency, Hospital Network, the Banking System, Power Plants – they call it the “Firessale” attack as “everything must go”. Bringing down these systems and networks can be carried out without a single shot being fired and could easily cause the kind of fatalities, injuries and disruption seen in recent terror attacks.
What is the Dark Web, the Deep Web, the Deepnet, the Invisible Web, the Hidden Web and the Dark Internet? This debate will explore and explain the hidden internet that you cannot find using search engines and how the occupants can dramatically affect our everyday lives and economy.
Do you use an online bank account? The password-protected bits are on the Deep Web. Also then consider how many pages just one Gmail account creates and that for every page on a public live site there is a corresponding one on the Deep Web you then start to understand the sheer size of the Deep Web.
Who is the enemy? How do they communicate? How can we stop them? George Osborne has given an additional £2bn to preventing cyber-attacks from this unknown cyber army.
