This assignment will help you recognize the different categories of hackers. One of the challenges with hacking is the number of different ways hackers are able to obtain information. Understanding the different categories can help you know the risks they might pose to an organization.
Choose one of the five categories and conduct an Internet search to find out how common your chosen group is and how the hackers are able to hack into computers.
Note: Your response should rely upon at least two sources from professional literature—articles from peer-reviewed journals and relevant textbooks. Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA format); and use accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
