You Can Use The Dark Web For Good

It's not the tool or weapon that is good or evil but to what use and intent it is applied.

About the Book

The Dark Web is just another powerful tool that can and should be used for peaceful purposes and actions in support of justice. It has been yielded to criminals for too long; almost as if law enforcement stopped using guns because, well, guns are icky and criminals use them. Many security professionals won't have anything to do with such; but that is deliberately ignoring the snake about to bite your leg because we are afraid of snakes. Read this pamphlet and dig for more information; talk among people you trust and come to your own conclusion. If you would like a free copy of this pamphlet send me an email at and request it, and tell me why you care about this subject. I'll send you a coupon for a free copy.

About the Author

djilpmh pi
djilpmh pi

Djilpmh Pi has been observing and making note of how Shadow IT has proliferated in many areas, and some of the most egregious examples are presented in his book "Shadow IT". While he does support the idea that "there are no stupid questions" he draws the line at "you can do that now?". Well yeah! Instead the question should be framed: is it bad or dangerous to me, how can I stop it, and what needs to be done to head off these situations in the future? Each type of Shadow IT is briefly described, suggestions on how to block it, and some observations to provide context and further background. Hint: company leadership needs to actively guide the vision and direction of how technology will be used, instead of forcing workers and developers creating and using new and innovative products and services to fight with traditional IT and security groups. If that wasted energy were put to collaborative effort everyone could benefit.
