Angels, Dodgers are responsible for their own cyber security
A baseball team — or any other small business — need not spend more than $20,000 to protect its intellectual property from cyber attack, said Mo Rosen, chief operating officer at Xceedium, a Virginia-based company that helps businesses and the government protect data. Rosen said a two-step authentication process — a password, plus a card provided by the Astros, similar to an ATM card — might have been enough to keep the team’s data safe. “They didn’t even take the most rudimentary steps to protect themselves,” Rosen said.
