The hotel industry is being increasingly targeted by acts of cybercrime. In November 2018, Marriott announced that the data of up to 500 million guests had been hacked over a four-year period. Just recently, researchers uncovered a massive data breach that could have serious implications for hotel chains around the globe.
Why are hotels being targeted? One reason is they store and process incredibly high volumes of guest information and credit card details. To safeguard this data, hotels need to invest in robust digital security that complies with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
