The Mexican state of Baja California and its largest city, Tijuana, present a complex security environment and a MEDIUM level of overall risk due to the presence of powerful organized crime groups that engage in cross-border drug smuggling and other activities.

Potential risks executives need to monitor include: targeted executive kidnapping, extortion by criminal groups, cargo truck hijacking, violent carjacking, and threats from random gun violence.

For foreign companies operating in Baja California, the primary concern is indirect risks from high overall levels of violence rather than targeted risk such as executive kidnappings or direct extortion attempts.
