There’s no truer proof that the criminal lives within all of us than the popularity of Rockstar Game’s Grand Theft Auto game series. If you’ve never played the game before, you’ve probably still heard the controversy surrounding the interactive storyline. The series encompasses all aspects of the criminal life. From gang violence to organized bank heists, this game puts the user in the shoes of the criminal. Business Insider ranks the previous edition, GTA-IV, as the fourth highest grossing video game in history at over $1.35 billion.
Rolland believes the criminal is a beast that truly lives in everyone. Sure, you and I do not act on those convictions, but it is important to realize they exist in everyone. This realization is vital to honestly assessing the security of our businesses. Every employee, customer, and 16 year old child with a video game controller has potential to act as a criminal.
Grand Theft Auto V is set to launch on September 17, 2013.
