In August of 2019, the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was the victim of a cyberattack that compromised the personal information of their customers. The attack was discovered when casino officials noticed unusual activity on their computer network. The casino immediately notified law enforcement and began an investigation into the incident. It was later determined that the hackers had gained access to the casino's database, which contained customer information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. The hackers also gained access to some credit card information, though no financial information was compromised. The casino has since taken steps to improve their cybersecurity measures.
