Combating crime and preventing disturbances in the society’s order and dealing with abuses and offenses, is largely responsible by regulatory agencies and law enforcement agencies. In the modern world, these institutions need more vigilance compared to the past. The emergence of large and even international criminal networks and their use of new technologies, especially communication technologies, in perusing their targets, have led to regulatory bodies and law enforcement of countries to face complex and difficult issues.
The success of these institutions in combating the threats to the order and security of the society, especially organized crime, which imposes significant damage on countries, the acquisition of awareness and the ability to respond appropriately and timely to crimes and optimally exploiting data either due to their governmental position or being part of an institution that has accumulated data over time while dealing with perpetrators and offenders. For a long time, detectives and analysts of regulatory bodies solving crimes collected documents and information relating to the cases and would then analyze them. In today’s world, with the volume and variety of data being far more than before, the analysis of data on offenses without the use of appropriate technologies would be similar to searching for needles in a haystack. Therefore, for regulatory authorities to confront the complex crimes of today’s world should be equipped with appropriate tools for data analysis.
