You may have wondered when or what the first example of cybercrime was and you may not be shocked by the responses. Before the Internet had come into being and including data theft, the first cases of cybercrime were committed. The invention of digitized techniques may have moved humanity into the 21st century, but criminals did the same thing.
In the early 2000s, when social media came to life, cybercrime really began to take off. A flood of personal information and the rise of ID theft was generated by the influx of people putting all the information they could into a profile database. Thieves used the information to reach bank accounts, set up credit cards or other financial fraud in a variety of ways.
The new wave is the emergence of an annual global crime enterprise totalling almost half a trillion dollars. Such criminals work in groups, use well-established tactics and target everything and anybody with a web presence.
