Rege-Padhardwan’s 2009 analysis, Cybercrimes against critical infrastructures: a study of online criminal organization and techniques, describes three typologies of criminal cybercriminal. Since 2009 there are developments in the world of computer hacking and within governments that proves there is another typology–the state hacker. Who are these state hackers? As the Mueller report https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf highlights, individuals connected to the Russian government engaged in a systematic attack on the election process in the 2016 Presidential election. The state cyber hacker role is not confined to election meddling. They are currently engaged and will be called upon to attack a country’s infrastructure . Are the state hackers of Rege analysis actual government employees, or individuals hired from the cyber criminal world?

Jackson writes in Chapter One, Predicting Malicious Behavior:

“The ability to predict future behavior is not based on a specific type of statistical method or calculation. Accurate anticipation of behavior is based on the underlying model and the components of behavior used to develop the predictive model. ( p. 5)”

If the ABC model is not predicated on any type of statistical method, how can it be judged valid? What does Jackson show that supports his claim of a valid methodology? Are there any examples given by him to validate the claim of a reliable predictive model for individual terrorism?
