Casino operators Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts are working with law enforcement investigators as they continue to grapple with the impact of recent separate cyber attacks.

The cybersecurity breaches were reported within days of each other and follow several other high-profile cyber attacks in several industries. These include hacks of a third-party database serving Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen CarePath; a data file sharing service that affected millions including recipients of Medicare; and of a cloud-storage environment related to online password management service LastPass.
