City of Las Vegas wakes up to a cyber attack

  • In the early hours of Tuesday morning, city officials in Las Vegas were alerted that their computer network had suffered a security breach.
  • If it is a ransomware attack that has hit Las Vegas then the cybercriminals may be out of luck if they’re hoping that the city will pay up.
  • In July last year, Las Vegas’s mayor was a driving force behind a resolution from the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), agreeing to “stand united against paying ransoms in the event of an IT security breach.”
