Cyber Security: The Human Risk

This article originally started out with the intention of highlighting some of the risk factors associated with today’s most common data breaches and ways to help mitigate them, but a recent trip through a Vegas casino (I won’t name names to avoid any embarrassment) led me down a different path.  This past weekend I was walking with my girlfriend through the floor of one of Vegas’ more renowned casinos—one that does close to $100 million in revenue per year, not insignificant by any means, but definitely not a major player—and I noticed something that struck me as odd.  A computer terminal, sitting unattended and logged in, right on the casino floor, open to anyone, nefarious and virtuous, that would happen upon it.
