Leading Edge Career Paths: Understanding and Monitoring the Darknet

Join the Center for Careers and Internships and Alison Connolly ’02, as she explains what the darknet is and why it’s important in determining if you have been hacked and how you might begin a career in this important field. In addition, Alison will demonstrate her firm’s DarkOwl Vision platform, which provides the world’s largest commercially available database of DARKINT. Unlike conventional offerings which rely heavily on manpower to comb the darknet, DarkOwl Vision automatically, anonymously and continuously collects, indexes and ranks actionable darknet data. By shortening the time frame to detection of compromised data, organizations can swiftly detect security gaps and mitigate damage prior to misuse of their data.

Alison Connolly is Director of Strategic Partnerships at DarkOwl, which has the world’s largest commercially available database of darknet content. DarkOwl is a Denver-based company that is regarded as the darknet experts and empowers organizations to continually improve their cyber-security defense. Alison joined DarkOwl over two years ago to take a senior role in crafting and executing a sales strategy for the organization. Since graduating from Middlebury in 2002 and Tuck in 2011, she has spent her career in sales and business development roles, across several industries including finance, sports, and now cybersecurity, and has built her career around incorporating an MBA mindset to traditional BD processes. She has led organizations to bridge the gap between sales and delivery and successfully shortened sales cycles, improved prospecting metrics and onboarding, and achieved revenue growth faster.

Prior to this role, Alison ran her own consulting firm, Spinnaker Consulting, where she designed and executed on sales growth plans and client acquisition and retention. Working with several firms across the US, her focus was on quick identification and correction of gaps in prospecting strategy, sales process, onboarding, and client services. Prior to going out on her own, she held the position of National Director of Girls Lacrosse at 3d Lacrosse, where she built the women’s division through key acquisitions across the country and before that, she served as Director of Business Development at Allonhill, also based in Denver.

Alison received her BA from Middlebury College in 2002 where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Economics and was also a two sport All-American in soccer and lacrosse, captaining both teams and winning three national championships in lacrosse. Alison received several awards at Middlebury including the Christian A. Johnson Prize in Economics, awarded to the highest GPA of all economic majors, the Harry M. Fife Memorial Award for excellence in economics and athletics, and the Hazeltine Memorial Trophy for combined ability in athletics and excellence in scholarship. Alison also received her MBA from Tuck in 2011, graduating with distinction and as a Tuck Scholar.

DarkOwl provides darknet threat intelligence data and services to allow companies and organizations to understand and mitigate their own digital risks. DarkOwl’s data platform allows companies to see in real-time the theft, breach, or other compromises of their proprietary data on the darknet, allowing them to both mitigate damage prior to the information being misused and to highlight gaps in their cybersecurity perimeter. This database is believed to be the largest database of darknet content available to commercial users. DarkOwl complements this with a full range of cybersecurity consulting services.
