Change is inevitable and it happens in every industry. Those that evolve with change often help lead the transformation and revolutionize their domain. In 2016 we began to enter the era of digital transformation in our industry and changes have begun to take place that are revolutionizing the way we consume, collect and deliver data to every aspect of society. Along with these changes have we seen the creation of new businesses and opportunities centered around this evolution in connectivity. Digitization is creating growth opportunities and offering user experiences in ways we have never seen before.
As the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang approaches, Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) and Threat Research Center turn their attention to the large crowds and target-rich environments created by high-profile events once again. With over 1.07 million tickets available for 102 events over 16 days, spread out across two clusters and containing a total of 12 venues, the crowds at the 2018 Winter Olympics will bring a large demand for connectivity. This enormous demand for connectivity and technology at the Winter Olympics will also pose a security risk for Olympic organizers, partners, sponsors, suppliers, service providers, athletes and attendees.
