Whilst you’re likely to have seen huge amounts of press about high profile data leakages and hackings that have happened at huge organisations such as Yahoo and Dixons Carphone Warehouse, what you might not be able to understand is how that relates to you and your business.
The Dark Net is something you may never have heard of but is very much out there and becoming more mainstream than ever before. Accessed through a special browser, a ‘TOR’ browser, it contains a whole host of encrypted websites and networks that are used for a wide array of illicit activities, including drug dealing and cybercrime ‘as-a-service’.
The Buckinghamshire Cyber Security Summit is bringing Jamie Bartlett and his seminar to Milton Keynes on the 8th November.
About Jamie Bartlett!
Author of the famed work The Dark Net, journalist and keynote speaker, Jamie Bartlett lights up the hidden corners of the internet to reveal the strange subcultures and protagonists that inhabit it – from Bitcoin miners to neo-Nazis.
As Head of the Violence and Extremism Programme at the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos, Jamie has researched and written extensively about radical political parties and movements across Europe, with a particular focus on the role of social media and modern technology.
The Centre combines automated data extraction and sentiment analysis with social science statistics, analysis and ethics in order to produce insightful and robust policy research.
Jamie also co-authored #intelligence with Sir David Omand, which explores the use of internet intelligence by the security services and the police. His second book, Radicals Chasing Utopia: Inside the Rogue Movements Trying to Change the World, explores the individuals, groups and movements that reject the way we live today and if radicals are the only group who have changed the world.
His areas of expertise range from social media monitoring and analytics, Internet culture and ‘the dark net’, crypto-currencies, surveillance technology, machine learning, automated sentiment analysis, big data, cyber privacy and law, social media research ethics, and the reform to RIPA 2000.
He is also a technology blogger for the Telegraph and regularly contributes to publications on how the internet is changing politics and society, including the New York Times, The Times, the Guardian, Foreign Policy, and Prospect.
2017 sees Jamie present his first major BBC series and continually publish and research work on radical political movements, cybercrime and the internet culture.
