Title:Motivational Factors and Tactics of Cybercriminals
Authors:Madrid, Nathan

Abstract:This research aims to analyze relationships between the frequency of cybercriminal behaviors and motivations to hack various computers. Cybercriminals' motives might diverge significantly from one another, but they might also have enormous similarities in that they were frequently directed to grey areas of social lives.
This research project will examine several different studies to compare literature reviews and analyses of past researchers. This research will evaluate the differential importance attributed to motivations in hacking activities and being a cybercriminal. These studies will be compared to literature and research conducted to determine different values that were proven and their behavioral characteristics.
This study will identify different ratings of motivational factors and show correlations between priorities and frequency of hacking behaviors. The discrepancy between the ratings of the literature motivations and the relationship between these motivations and engagement in hacking supports the idea that the ratings of literature motivations reflect culturally recognized reasons than real personal causes.
This study will provide insight into the motivational factors and activities of cybercriminals. This analysis will show the tactics and motivations behind cybercriminals and show proven studies with real cybercriminals to theories about their tactics.
