Lets just say that you are planning a cargo heist with your faction,and are about to intercept the ship with all the good loot.
But if you were to be discovered, would you and your entire faction be in danger of getting attacked because of the attempted cargo heist?
So, would it just be better to not steal it at all and do your own cargo work without risk or risk the safety of your entire faction?
This also begs the question if stealing stuff would even be a thing that people would do, because most people will automatically do the things that would make them more money instead of risking all their stuff? So would stealing even be profitable?
Just curious?

Without any long range sensors, it may be just very time and fuel consuming to find the target.

So maybe not really better money than doing honest work.

But!

PvP is fun, so just for that it's worth sacrificing net income.

Stealing also means reducing the wealth of other player, which is useful during war.

Pirating can be also used to make people pay taxes "gimme 50k per day and your faction ca travel safely through our sector, while competition have to fly around".

Well you could see if people regularly mine in a similar area then if they take the same route back you could set an ambush along the way, also stealing or pirating could definitely be profitable as you would probably be in a well armed fast attack craft while they are probably going to be in an unarmed vessel so the likely cost is some weapons to disable the engines and if they have guards or a well armed crew a one or two of your own crew dead

Also its unlikely you would be in danger of being attacked as it would make the other faction seem like the aggressors as you have not attacked them yet, however it may warn them to prepare and increase the security of their cargo ships
