Recently in my home town, the city of Las Vegas had their city computers compromised which is why I believe Fox 5 decided to make this news story this week.
Coming from an IT security background, I think the city is definitely doing what it can to combat the cyber incidents with the inclusion of the Nevada Gaming Commission taking a heavier look at cyber security measures across all Casinos but might fall short especially in a town driven by customer data.
I find it interesting that Las Vegas hasn't taken larger hits by bad actors but can only chalk it up to good cyber security teams in place and/or better PR teams to reduce the public knowledge. Either way, I'm glad it is being called out more often as it can be anyone's data being bought and sold these days.
