DIGITAL AND CYBER CRIME INVESTIGATIONS
Cyber crime is a growing focus for law enforcement and public safety professionals.
Darknet discovery tools such as Beacon help alleviate the time, expense, and learning curve involved in online criminal investigations.
From individual citizen targets, to police agencies, to the federal government, law enforcement is seeing more criminal cases related to breached data, identity theft, doxxing, and more. Law enforcement professionals must stay ahead of these risks to ensure their communities' safety.
The dark web is designed for anonymity. This makes it useful for coordinating crimes in the real world, especially at a distance. The darknet is full of marketplace listings for stolen identities and financial information, theft, child pornography, drug trafficking, and sex trafficking.
RADICAL CONTENT MONITORING
Darknet forums are linked to radicalizing extremist views. Perpetrators active on forums like 8chan are known to post manifestos prior to mass shootings. Manifestos often include references to past shootings, hate speech, and even descriptions of the plan or weapons used.
