A specific cyber security crime can be initiated by a disgruntled employee, who feels like they have been wronged by the company and wishes to get back at their employers. In a scenario like this the employee has credentials to sensitive information and wishes to hurt the company before leaving. The employee finds a discussion thread for hackers on the dark web and posts an offer of valuable information for a cut of the profit after selling the stolen data. Once a hacker accepts the offer, who wishes to take corporate information and sell it to competitors or other interested parties, the employee provides their secure credentials and paths to the data.

With a crime where information is stolen, the reputation and financial costs for the company could largely impact the company, to the point of bankruptcy. The information could be payment information of customers, which the company would be liable for. On top of the financial loss, company trust from consumers would take a plummet as well.
