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.

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

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.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
