Best practices in creating a vulnerability assessment programme: Measure twice and cut once, avoiding costly mistakes
This paper has two goals. The first is to help define the Dark Web and how it fits into the larger World Wide Web (WWW); secondly, to understand the Dark Web’s dangers and how to avoid the landmines contained therein. This paper utilises open source material to break down the three parts to the WWW: Surface Web, Deep Web and Dark Web. The paper views all three areas as distinctly important within our modern society, with the caveat that due caution needs to be exercised before exploring the second two areas of the Deep Web and the Dark Web. It’s important for security researchers to have a good understanding of these areas in order to protect organisations, as well as themselves, from potential cyber exploitation.
