Trends in Serious and Organized Crime

A rising global & technological threat

Far from diminishing in the current century, serious and organized crime has persisted and thrived, making use of the same trends in globalization and technology that in so many ways have made our lives simpler, faster, and even safer.

This report explores the dimensions of serious and organized crime and how it has changed over the past few years by leveraging globalization and technology to become more sophisticated and tech-savvy than ever. Criminals are using technology to commit both cybercrime and physical crimes, using methods such as Crime as a Service (CaaS) and Ransomware as a Service (RaaS). New technologies, such as cryptocurrencies, are increasingly exploited by criminal organizations to execute illicit transactions and hide from law enforcement.

This white paper concludes by delving into technologies and methodologies that law enforcement and security professionals can utilize to stay one step ahead of serious and organized criminals.
