Malicious cyber threat actors (CTAs) have historically used high-profile events, such as the Olympic Games, to disseminate malware and conduct scams, fraud, and cyber-espionage. As employees are likely to view Olympics related content at work, these activities will have direct implications for state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government networks. Furthermore, there is a distinct cyber threat against SLTT government devices brought to Pyeongchang by employees, as it is almost certain that cybercriminals and foreign intelligence agencies will monitor and intercept communications at the Games.
