We live in a time where even traditional crime has moved online.  Offences such as racketeering and trafficking, once the domain of local or international crime syndicates, exist in a virtual sense and are no longer limited to dark alleys and nondescript warehouses or even exclusive clubs and sprawling, palatial estates.  Activities can take place virtually anywhere, any time, and be undertaken by nearly anybody.  One can even equate recent cybercrimes to the long-standing practice of kidnapping and being held for ransom.  Data is now substituted for people, but the impact is just as critically significant.  Remain vigilant.  Stay safe.
