How the Winter Olympics was hacked

Originally aired: Monday, February 12, 2018

We've become an expert on all things Winter Olympics in my home. As we listen to the commentators, we all become experts on these sports that we never watch until the Olympics. But the real Olympic challenge this weekend was with the Olympic cybersecurity. Did you hear? The Olympics was under attack during the opening ceremony in Pyeongchang. While TV and internet access was affected, it didn't affect any critical aspect of their operations. They're not sure if any critical information was stolen. In other cybersecurity news, Equifax announced that their data breach left even more people's' information was stolen. Yes. This is a monumental problem. How can you fix this problem of people stealing your personal information? You can't. However, you can sign up for credit monitoring. Credit Karma also offers those services for free.
