Eight Degrees of Kevin Bacon

On the Internet Infographic

You’ve heard of ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’, the game that challenges players to connect the prolific actor with any other actor via their film roles in six steps or less. With RiskIQ, we can do the same thing, only using web assets.

What do we mean?

Kevin Bacon is a film actor, not a threat actor. But like threat actors, he has a digital footprint that spans the internet, the assets of which can be linked together and mapped using internet data sets. To prove it, we’ll use PassiveTotal—RiskIQ’s threat research tool—to show how, via eight degrees of web separation, you can link Kevin Bacon to anyone or anything on the internet—even us.

From country music stars to e-cigarette sites, there’s almost no limit to what you can uncover when you put PassiveTotal data sets to the test.
