Keeping Las Vegas Computer Users Safe

The Rio hotel and casino prepared its employees for the DEF CON Hacking Conference by asking them to be polite and welcoming to the 20,000 attendees and to refrain from using Wi-Fi during the conference. The conference attracts a mix of government- and private-sector professionals specializing in cyber security, but a significant number of the attendees are expected to be hackers. Those familiar with the conference see it as an odd pairing of those who dedicate their lives to protecting computer systems seated next to the people who try to break into those systems.


  1. It's important to NEVER use free wifi you don't trust. There are a lot of hackers that would steal from people through this... bad bad bad! -Cameron

  2. How wild that a hacking conference would be there... and it would compromise security. Did anyone have trouble? #IRONIC

  3. Hahaha. That's freaking hilarious. Just put up your firewall people.
