Cyber crimes are a threat to public safety and the economy. We have been left behind as more and more people fall prey to cyber criminals. The biggest threat comes from ransomware, where a user pays a hacker to get rid of their computer. We need to do better in classifying cybercrime so that we can stop them before they reach our PCs, smartphones, or any business system.

  • The following are some concrete examples of various types of cybercrime:
    Email and internet fraud are two types of fraud.
  • Identity theft is a serious problem (where personal information is stolen and used).
  • Theft of financial or credit card information.
  • Corporate data theft and sale
    Extortion via the internet (demanding money to prevent a threatened attack).

In classic crimes, perpetrators typically leave any evidence of the crime, such as fingerprints or other tangible evidence. Cyber criminals, on the other hand, perpetrate their crimes via the internet, with virtually little probability of leaving any tangible evidence.

Cyber criminals are the ones who use internet for their illegal activities. Whether it is money laundering, fraud or cyber warfare, cyber criminals can be categorized as a group of people that is willing to do anything to achieve their goals. In this article, we have classified some of the most common cyber criminals and categorize them accordingly.

The distinction between blue and white collar crimes is usually made on the basis of social status. White collar criminals are more likely to be from a higher social class, whereas blue collar criminals are more likely to be from a lower social class.
