Insider hacking consists of cybercrimes against entities initiated by individuals who hold a legitimate trust relationship with that entity. The responsibility of preventing insider hacking falls to information technology (IT) or information security departments staffed by computing professionals. The same can be said about research into the prevention of insider hacking, computing centric academics/professionals do the work. While this seems logical, established behavioral methods for reducing crime have largely been ignored. In this paper, the author places insider hacking into the context of the white-collar criminology literature then pulls from crime science, applying a situational crime prevention model to inform future research on insider hacking.
