As society has faced advances in technology, especially information technology, so has organized crime. The new form called high-tech crime is just proof of how flexible and operational criminal groups are and how ready they are to react quickly when it comes to social change. Organized groups usually cover new spheres of social relations much faster in which there are legal gaps, in relation to positive law, because the bulky bureaucratic state apparatus needs much more time and space to start and normatively regulate a new area. Organized crime has one and only one motive, and that is profit. Improper understanding of this point is seriously hampered by proper conceptualization in academic circles. The purpose of organized crime is neither violence nor power. Violence can be used to reach a position of power, but only as a means of obtaining or securing a source of income. Given the social cohesion of criminal activities and criminal structures, a wide range of socio-economic policies could qualify as measures against organized crime.
