Special Report: Data breaches
Special Report: Data breaches
17 JUNE 2016 11:55 AM

If the number of hotel data breaches in 2015 is any indication, hotel brands, owners and management companies have a number of tasks ahead of them to protect themselves and their guests. This special report includes resources for hoteliers on how to secure their systems, prevent attacks and respond when breaches occur. 

The hotel industry has increasingly become a target of hackers seeking guests’ personal and financial information. Industry and security experts expect that trend to continue, requiring hoteliers to become more vigilant in protecting their networks and guests’ information.

Hotel companies need to prepare, both in the preventive sense and how they respond. Hoteliers must find where and how they are vulnerable and shore up their defenses. They also must be realistic and know it’s possible a breach could still occur, so they need a plan on how to react when it happens.

In this special report, we work through the various angles of a hotel data breach, such as creating a response plan, where companies might be technologically and physically weak and how to repair broken trust with the public.
