Balanced Approach To The Subject
Thank you for putting in words what needs to be stated about the deep web.  The media is focused on the pedo / murder for hire for the attention it makes.  People should be concernend with what is already is in plain sight.

It was guys like Snowden that was able to get the message to us about what is going on through a medium such as this. It cuts both ways at the end of the day.

What is the point of the article?
You said: At the end of the day, there are many legitimate purposes for harnessing the Dark Web, but only when security teams take steps to empower their efforts, not endanger them.

 

What were the legitimate purposes?

 

Why make any distinction between networks like "deep web" and "dark web" it's all just a different client or level of privacy enforced by rules or encryption, or as simple as a sign on to a site.   Seems silly to just make up a distinction where none exists in reality.

If you are looking for your data you lost it's already too late for your organization anyway!

Best to spend your time and resources on practicing good privacy protection

Shining light on the dark
This was a good start to illuminating some facts about the dark web. Like the cloud during its inception, I feel the dark web is not very well understood. It seems the dark web is just referred to as a place where nefarious events take place. Continuing in the path of this article would be a good start to helping people's understanding.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
