Major events like the Olympics are large targets for hackers, according to cybersecurity experts. Fans of a large event are often seen as easy targets for a wide range of attacks, including phishing emails, domain theft, ransomware, and fake social media posts, Engin Kirda, professor of computer science at Northeastern University, told TechRepublic during the summer 2016 Olympics in Brazil. If an employee falls victim to one of these attacks on a work machine, it may put their business at risk as well.
