Abstract: Most people who browse the Internet are not aware that they are only seeing about 5% of the World Wide Web.  The other 95% is composed of the Deep Web and the Dark Web.  The Deep Web is a section of the Web not cataloged by browsers or web spiders and consists of business and government records and other related information.  The Dark Web is a place of mystery and legends.  The Dark Web isn’t accessible through normal browsers and has more than drug deals, hired assassins, and stolen materials.  It also is where many legitimate organizations such as Amnesty International and most major news organizations have information sites.

This talk will acquaint you with the Deep Web and the Dark Web and show you how to get, and use, the TOR browser, which is one of the only ways to access the Dark Web.

Lunch:  A plated lunch will be available immediately following the presentation.  The menu choices include:  pasta, salads, and various sandwiches for $14/person including beverage, service charge, and sales tax.

Future Events: March 18, 2020 – To be announced
