The Epoch Times reports that during a Feb. 28 event, Vance said it has reached a point where “It is rare that a case does not involve some kind of cyber or computer element that we prosecute in our office—whether it is homicide, whether it’s financial crime case, whether it’s a gang case where the gang members are posting on Facebook where they’re going to meet.” He also noted that organized crime groups in New York are shifting their focus to cybercrime, and that many local criminals are working with international hackers.
