The Dark Side of the Dark Web

Briefing Note The Dark Side Of The Dark Web

Covered in this Briefing Note:


In this Themis briefing note, we shed light on financial crime conducted via the dark web. Although a source of privacy and freedom for some, this hidden part of the internet also hosts a range of virtual retail outlets selling every kind of prohibited or illegally obtained product or service imaginable - from body parts to narcotics to high net worth individuals’ bank password details. Anonymity is integral to the dark web, which helps to explain its attractiveness to criminals and organised crime groups as an avenue for money laundering and other forms of financial crime, often using cryptocurrencies.

What is being done to crack down on illicit activity in this mysterious corner of the internet, and what can organisations do to protect themselves against criminals operating on the dark web?
