Evaluating the WeTheNorth Illicit Online Forum
October 25, 2021 • Caitlin Mattingly
Recorded Future’s Insikt Group recently discovered a new Canada-focused darknet marketplace called WeTheNorth. This localized criminal marketplace features a variety of illegal goods and services for sale, many of which pose a threat to local and global enterprises. WeTheNorth administrators have gone to great lengths to create a marketplace geared toward protecting Canadian buyers and sellers and fostering a relatively safe place to complete transactions.
On this week’s episode we welcome back Recorded Future threat intelligence analyst Charity Wright to provide insights on WeTheNorth and the techniques she and her colleagues used to analyze the group.
