Cyber hacking is not a topic that I expected to be writing

about in conjunction with the U.S. Nationals, but it certainly did impact

Arabian Horse Global Network yesterday, along with millions of others ranging

from individuals to huge entities like Netflix and Twitter. It was an

unexpected challenge, but Michaël Steurs, Riyan Rivero, and the Global team

worked relentlessly to bring the livestream broadcasts, results, and blogs back

online as soon as possible. Although Michaël was operating from the Rabab

championships in Egypt and Riyan was at command central in Tulsa, they were

able to restore services with minimal disruption. Fight off a cyber-attack?

Check!! Now, back to the business of

celebrating the Arabian horse!
