Think of the internet/web as an iceberg. Most people only see what's above the water: the news, gossip and illicit content that's just a Google search away. But just below the surface is the vast expanse of the deep web: all the data search engines can't find. Long maligned as the online place where criminals go to ply their trades and hide from the law, the darknet is going mainstream. With growing privacy concerns, more companies have had to grapple with regular users wanting to combine the anonymity of the darknet and the benefits of the internet. It's time to explore the Wild West of the internet as we cover what the darknet is and the risks associated with it being the place where more everyday internet users work. This session will not be recorded.
