Financial crime is becoming extensively more abstract. Today we see breaches of privacy and theft using highly auspicious varieties of Malware: from phishing scams, data skimming to DNA hacking and insider trading, which due to obvious progress will only get increasingly more innovative, upon breaching the horizon. However, I don’t think the underlying framework of inherent theft will ever change, but perhaps we will be exposed to more sophisticated varieties or versions, even ‘worlds’ of what’s past.
