Calif. Now Top Target for Cybercrime

March 21, 2014  | 

California is the top target in the U.S. for international criminal enterprises that operate from safe havens in Eastern Europe, Africa and China, according to a report being released Thursday.

Along with trafficking in drugs, guns and people, criminals are also turning to cybercrime to target wealthy, innovative businesses and financial institutions in the state, California Attorney General Kamala Harris said in the report.

Harris said the report is the first to outline the effects of international criminal organizations on California residents and businesses.

She was set to formally release the 181-page report during a news conference with other law enforcement officials in Los Angeles. It was obrained in advance by The Associated Press.
