This document establishes an investigation and prosecution framework that emphasizes four priority areas of action against organized crime: Marshal information and intelligence; prioritize and target the most significant IOC threats; attacks from all angles; and enterprise theory. "In recent years, international organized crime has expanded considerably in presence, sophistication and significance - and it now threatens many aspects of how Americans live, work and do business. International organized crime promotes corruption, violence and other illegal activities, jeopardizes our border security, and causes human misery. It undermines the integrity of our banking and financial systems, commodities and securities markets, and our cyberspace. In short, international organized crime is a national security problem that demands a strategic, targeted and concerted U.S. Government response."
