VIENNA - The technical sophistication of cybercriminals is swamping the world's ability to cope, a top US official warned on Friday, demanding an accelerated cross-border campaign to combat the security threat.

"Most countries don't even have a legal framework that really governs cyber. It is such a new phenomenon in that regard so the legal systems -- both domestic and international -- have not kept pace with the technological advances we have seen," US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said.

"And that is just the plain fact of it. We need to accelerate that in response," she told reporters in Vienna.

Prominent cyber attacks of late have targeted the International Monetary Fund, the US Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Senate, and companies such as Citigroup and Lockheed Martin Corp
