The Web is a Hidden Goldmine of Criminal Activity Data

Criminals of all types embrace the web, using it to communicate, plan, perpetrate and report on illegal activities. The web is also where law-abiding citizens and groups meet to share ideas and promote their agendas, some of which can cause unintended damage.

The nuggets of information (e.g., names, addresses, times, references, associations) that criminals and others inadvertently leave behind on social networking sites, forums, blogs and microblogs (collectively referred to as the deep web) are often the key to successful investigations, both before and after incidents occur. In fact, some of the most important bits of information concerning entities and the connections between them are found only online, embedded in the metadata of publicly shared posts, videos, polls, petitions and group pages.
