Outline Paper Cybercrime Outline Research Paper Intro Paragraph: 1. Opening: “Everyone always hears about victims of Cybercrime, but never really comprehend the true meaning of how devastating the aftermath of it can be” (David Wall). 2. Thesis: Cybercrime is one of the leading causes of devastation in society today because of how victims are easily targeted due to lack of knowledge of this far reaching and multifaceted crime. Americans need to take the initiative to properly educate themselves on how to accurately steer clear of cybercrime. .

How the ways technology increases it becoming harder to protect yourselves from becoming a victim. 4. For my first main point I will use a direct quote from someone I know that once tried to commit suicide due to cybercrime. For main point #2 I will use a statistics from CNN on how the elderly are more vulnerable to online predators. Finally, for main point #3 I will use both a direct quote nd statistic on how technology is ever changing and how it’s becoming harder to protect yourself from online predators. Body: Paragraph 1: I will be defining suicide because I feel that people don’t really understand what the term means and why people commit suicide, people quickly judge them for it without understanding why they resulted in killing themselves.
