Press release from: EC-Council

The Bureau has its hands full and is asking the public for help. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has just revealed some interesting statistics on a burgeoning headache — white-collar Internet crime. Since the IC3 began recording cyber-theft 10 years ago, the agency arm says that it’s received two million complaints on white-collar Internet crime.

The most common complaints filed by the agency Impersonators were impersonators acting as FBI agents, non-payment of items ordered on the Internet, and identity theft. The rest of the “Top Ten” included computer crimes, miscellaneous fraud, advance fee fraud, spam, auction fraud, credit card fraud and overpayment fraud. The report also listed some of the “newer” forms of Internet crimes:

The report also announced some of the “newer” forms of Internet crimes:

■Telephone calls claiming victims are delinquent on payday loans.
■Online apartment, house rental and real estate scams used to swindle consumers out of thousands of dollars.
■Denial-of-service attacks on cell phones and landlines used as a ruse to access victims’ bank accounts.
■Fake e-mails seeking donations to disaster relief efforts after last year’s earthquake in Haiti

Information security professionals can thwart web-based white-collar crime through awareness and preparation. EC-Council, a leading certification body organizes an Information Security Conference called TakeDown Conference, a highly technical security training conference with a platform that will allow participants to go through both hands on and real life scenario based training covering domains such as web application security, penetration testing and social engineering.

Ethical Hacking training is vital in helping curb Internet crime.
