President Obama unveiled his plans to combat what the United States is calling “Transnational Organized Crime” (TOC) in a paper released by the White House this morning.

The document is called “Strategy to Combat Transnational Organized Crime” and focuses primarily on encouraging more international cooperation to target organized criminals dealing in smuggling people, smuggling drugs, committing acts of terror and online financial crime.

The focus of the cybercrime component appears to be better information sharing, investigation and cooperation among nations to investigate the use of the internet and technology by organized criminals. The President acknowledges that the US must do more, but that with the distributed nature of these crimes around the world it can only be effective if governments work together internationally.
