A close to heart example of a costly data breach is MGM Resort, in February Under The Breach broke the news that a database of 10,600,000 guests that stayed in MGM Resort in Las Vegas was posted in a hacking forum for everyone to grab, it got covered by ZDNet, NYTimes, CNBC, and other news outlets.

Among the victims were Justin Bieber, Jack Dorsey, DHS, and TSA officials, but most importantly - MGM’s reputation

Moreover, the company now faces a lawsuit over the leaked content which could settle for very costly fines. For reference, British Airways are facing a 230M GDPR fine for a similar 2018 data breach[3].

It is worth mentioning that the day Under The Breach broke the news, MGM’s stock ($MGM) dropped by 2.94%, resulting in a loss of $450,000,000!

How are we different?

For years, being part of the most secretive cyber-criminal communities, which security professionals only know by name, taught us that when it comes to protecting your organization, the biggest threat facing it are real financially motivated threat actors.

We know how hackers think, we know how to talk to them.
