With a treasure trove of personal and financial data on their guests, the hospitality industry represents one of the most targeted industries for cyber criminals. In 2018 alone, over 630 million individuals were subjects of just 2 data breaches in the hospitality industry, representing a staggering 8.17% of the population of the entire world. The result of such a breach can total millions of dollars in fines and lawsuits, and severely damage consumer trust. The hospitality sector faces a number of challenges related to information security, including:
- Storing customer data (payment cards, passport numbers, etc.)
- Large employee workforce without IT background
- Wireless networks for guests to securely connect to
- Vendors operating within the facilities
