Why cybercriminals want your personal data

Why cybercriminals want your personal data | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Over the past few years, the personal data theft landscape has changed as online behaviors and activities evolve.

 

To better understand this crime, it helps to understand what personal data is worth to an identity thief. The average identity thief doesn’t steal data to use for him or herself. In most cases, they take the personal information and sell it on the online black market. It can be surprising what an individual’s personal information is worth.

Based off of what we’ve seen at CSID, a credit card number, name and date of birth can sell for $13. A Social Security Number can go for $20. A bank account with a balance of $10,000 goes for an average cost of $625. Even the value of a person’s social media account has worth. According to RSA, 10,000 followers on Twitter sell for $15. 1,000 likes on Facebook sell for $15.
