And here at the Daytona International Speedway, we host hundreds of thousands of die-hard race fans every year. This is racing’s biggest stage.
But it’s what you don’t see that can be a real challenge. I’m managing director of security here at NASCAR
Rachel Rojas: And I’m Rachel Rojas, special agent in charge of FBI Jacksonville.
Rhodes: Cybersecurity is a real concern in the sports world. Here at NASCAR, our security teams work around the clock to guard our systems against cyber criminals to protect our employees, drivers, and millions of fans.
Rojas: And Bill isn’t alone. American businesses, critical infrastructure, and government agencies are facing a number of cyberattacks, and it’s threatening the safety of our nation and our economy.
