The internet is split roughly into 3 sections. What most of us refer to as ‘the internet’ is referred to as the “Clear Web’. This is indexed by a search engine and accessed by a standard web browser, such as Google. The problem is that according to experts, it only makes up 5% of the internet. About 90% of the internet is called the ‘Deep Web’. Whilst these sites that are not indexed by search engines, they may be accessed by a standard browser and web link. Medical databases, financial records and academic journals can all be accessed via the Deep Web. The final 5% of the internet is the Dark Web.
Imagine the scenario when tasked with managing the affairs of an UHNWI, Private Family Office or global celebrity. You receive a phone call from them, perhaps a message left on the answering machine, telling you that they are going to be unobtainable for the next hour, but need you to transfer funds on an urgent matter immediately.
