Vegas Casinos Under Cyber Siege: Caesars Hit With Cyber Attack, Made Ransom Payment Just Before MGM Outages
Caesars Entertainment quietly made a ransom payment to resolve a cyber attack in August, just before rival company MGM was hit. Caesars paid $15 million, and does not appear to have experienced any disruption to its operations unlike MGM.
Despite Apple’s increased attention to bolstering iMessage against these sorts of zero-click attacks, the new Pegasus spyware zero-days are once again able to exploit target phones without the user clicking on or interacting with a message in any way.
After what MGM Resorts is thus far only describing as a “cybersecurity issue,” casinos in Las Vegas and throughout the US have been reduced to manual bookkeeping and reduced services.
Are you exposed?
External attackers are responsible for 80% of security breaches.
Much of your business is now online. Systems are in the cloud, your employees work remotely, SaaS solutions supports your business and your data is everywhere. Cybercriminals are always looking for their next victim on the internet. Are you an easy target?

How do they get in?
17% of breaches started with a phishing attack
It is estimated that more than 3 billion phishing emails are sent every day. As phishing attacks get more sophisticated, users must be more aware of the different techniques cybercriminals are using to get them to download malware and give up their access credentials. Are you testing your employee security awareness?
More than 100K reported vulnerabilities in last 5 years
More than 100,000 vulnerabilities were reported for commonly used software over the last five years. This is an average of 2.5 vulnerabilities published every hour. In 2019 alone, 1 out of 3 vulnerabilities was given a High or Critical severity rating.
In a 2020 study, 14% of vulnerability exploits were publicly available before the vendor released security patches, and another 23% were available within the first week.
19% of breaches exploited vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
1 Vulnerability Assessment
Use a vulnerability scanner to analyze your environment for vulnerabilities. The scan should include all your servers, network devices whether they are located within your premises or hosted in the cloud.
Best practices suggest running vulnerability scans at least on a quarterly basis.
2 Penetration Testing
A penetration test simulates the tools and techniques of an attacker to detect and exploit vulnerabilities. This approach conducted by a skilled professional helps you identify possible attack routes and securities vulnerabilities that may not be found from vulnerability assessments.
Most industry standards recommend a penetration test on your network, web and mobile applications at least once a year and after major changes.
3 Configuration Review
Configuration reviews can help ensure that servers and network devices are securely configured, and alert you to any errors and misconfigurations.
While vulnerability assessments and penetration testing provides an analysis from an external point of view, configuration reviews provide an in-depth view from within your servers and network devices.
4 Secure Code Review
Security weaknesses introduced by software developers may not be easily detected by vulnerability assessments and penetration testing.
Reviewing the source code of your custom-built applications for vulnerabilities or malicious code helps prevent security issues from going into production and is an important part of a secure development lifecycle.
5 Private Bug Bounty Program
While penetration testing is one of the most effective way to discover vulnerabilities, you are still limited by the knowledge, capability and experience of the team. No one can claim to be able to identify every possible vulnerability in a software.
Enlisting the help of the white hat community to hunt for security bugs provides you with greater diversity and broader perspectives. And you pay for results, not for time.
Almost 40% of data breaches involved hacking
According to Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, almost 40% of the more than 5,000 data breaches analyzed in 2020 involved hacking. The malicious activities include exploiting vulnerabilities, using stolen credentials and brute forcing.
And more than 50% of attacks are targeted at web application servers.
