Here, the author parallels technical sophistication with organized crime. Does technical sophistication mean technical fraud?

Thanks in advance

For instance, the role played by violent pornography in these cases is difficult to
overlook. Child pornography alone—which, as many have noted, is the visual record of an actual crime—is now a global, multibillion-dollar industry, involving kidnapping, “sex
tourism,” organized crime, and great technical sophistication in the use of the internet.
Apparently, there are enough people who are eager to see children—and, increasingly,
toddlers and infants—raped and tortured so as to create an entire subculture.74

    This is not a parallel, but a list:
    a global, multibillion-dollar industry, involving
    1) kidnapping,
    2) "sex tourism,"
    3) organized crime,
    and
    4) great technical sophistication in the use of the internet.


    Technical sophistication likely means the knowledge to use the dark web – the internet that you and I don't see – plus the ability to accept payments for what is shown.
