Event to explore secrets of the dark web

Secrets of the elusive and mysterious ‘Dark Web’ and the national strategic response to it will be revealed at a free public event at our University on Thursday 16 February. 

Organised by the School of Law’s student-run Information Technology Law Society (GEEKLAW), the event, titled ‘Identity Theft on the Dark Web’, hopes to demystify the ‘Dark Web’ by explaining what it is and how crimes such as identity theft occur in its domains.

Student Loye Oyedotun, President of GEEKLAW, said: “It is incredible to think that the parts of the internet we interact with on a day-to-day basis barely scratches the surface of what exists out there.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about what exactly the ‘Dark Web’ is, the potential opportunities therein, and how identity theft occurs on the ‘Dark Web’.”

Certificates of attendance will be given to paid GEEKLAW members. Yearly membership is £4 and can be purchased here.

The event, ‘Identity Theft on the Dark Web’, will be held on 16 February 2017 and will run from 2:00PM - 3:30PM. The event will take place at the Bennett Lecture Theatre 3 at our University.
