From the meteoric rise of vacation platforms like Airbnb, to chronic labor shortages, low occupancy rates, highly variable pricing and worries of future lockdowns, the hospitality industry faces multiple challenges. Compounding these issues is the increasing number and severity of sophisticated cyberattacks on hospitality POS systems to gain access to guests’ financial and other data. These unwitting guests can then easily be targeted with ransomware attacks.
We can help protect your guests — as well as your brand’s reputation — from falling victim to data breaches by assessing and strengthening your entire cybersecurity posture, while also implementing technical solutions that fully align with your business goals.
How We Can Help
Clearly see your security posture and reduce your network’s vulnerability to attacks
Despite the devastating effects the global pandemic had on the hospitality industry over the last few years, air travel, the economy, and hotel occupancy rates today are all heading into full recovery mode. But this also means that cybercriminals are again increasing their attacks in those areas of the hospitality industry most vulnerable. These include the popular and vital POS systems, as well as providing guests with reliable internet access, while employees require access to applications for ordering and other tasks, adding more risks. A single breach can lead to tens of thousands of guests’ financial and personal data captured by cybercriminals.
We mitigate dangers to your network by exposing weaknesses, and providing remedies, through our penetration testing, vulnerability management and threat detection services. By creating a resilient architecture to segment the network, credit card data and your most critical infrastructure are segmented from the rest of the network. We also provide configuration hardening, patch management and other solutions to attacks on your network.
During penetration testing, our experienced security experts relentlessly seek to exploit system vulnerabilities and enter your network. Then our white hats go back on to help you shore up exposed weaknesses.
The most effective response, no matter the incident
Cybercriminals deploying sophisticated attacks can cause great damage to vulnerable hospitality organizations, from large chains to small regional properties, and their guests. These hackers gain access to guest data by compromising POS systems or booking pages through phishing or a host of other malicious tools in their arsenal.
We protect your properties from these advanced threats with continuous real-time monitoring capabilities, coupled with the most effective ways to respond. No matter what the incident, you’ll deliver the most effective response to protect your brand and your guests. So everyone will have a pleasant stay, and an excellent experience.
