While you’re enjoying the Olympics a cyber thief could be plundering your
BlackBerry or smartphone thanks to that new Bluetooth headset you just bought to
comply with B.C.’s new hands-free driving laws.
And if you’re a police officer, a politician or a government agent carrying
sensitive security information, the thief could be a terrorist intent on
industrial or political espionage.
It’s the dark side of the Olympics, warns David Gewirtz, executive director
of the U.S. Strategic Perspective Institute and editor-in-chief of the ZATZ
magazines. He’s telling visitors and residents to turn off Bluetooth connections
and never let their laptops or cellphones out of their hands.
