Cyber Criminals Sentenced to Long Jail Time in 2013

01.31.14

Daily headlines about cyber crime are the norm and occasionally we learn that arrests are made, but did you ever wonder if those cyber criminals ever were convicted? Or went to jail? Historically the conventional wisdom from the FBI, Interpol, and police agencies around the world used to be that only about 10% of IT (Information Technology) crimes were ever reported. Of course the primary reason to keep IT crime a secret was that if a major IT company admitted they were robbed it would likely lead to a lack of public confidence.

But today revelations about cyber crime are common every day on Internet reports, and as a result public awareness about cyber crime is the norm. Clearly most companies cannot hide these cyber crimes from the public.

In 2013 many cyber criminals were sentenced in the US because of hacking into POS (Point of Sale) systems, hacking “corporate, university and government computer networks,” copyright infringement of movies, and a myriad of other crimes.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
