Microsoft Issues Warning: Sporting Events Vulnerable to Potential Major Cyberattacks
Microsoft has offered valuable advice on how organizations, especially those involved in large sporting events, can safeguard themselves and their attendees against cyber threats.
In its fifth installment of the Cyber Signals report, Microsoft provides insights into how threat actors target and breach the venues, teams, and infrastructure of major sporting events. This guidance comes at a critical time, with the FIFA Women’s World Cup currently underway in Australia and New Zealand. A survey by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) revealed that 70% of surveyed sporting organizations experience at least one cyberattack each year.
