THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DEEP & DARK WEB IN CENSORED ENVIRONMENTS
Social media governance across the globe differs depending on region. In countries such as China, Russia, and Iran, government attempts to control the online narrative through censorship, blocking, and filtering communications and content are commonplace.
Often, citizens must seek alternative strategies for communication, including the use of encoded speech and access to ungoverned spaces that allow greater freedom of speech- such as the Deep and Dark Web. However, this restricted content and access presents challenges for intelligence agencies seeking to collect critical insights.
In this white paper, Fivecast and Bluestone Analytics examine how censorship strategies affect communication patterns and the use of OSINT to extract strategic insights from difficult-to-access spaces on the Web.
