Hospitality faces a growing cyber threat

If you run a hotel or hospitality venue, the cyber criminals are coming for you.

Pre-pandemic research showed that the hospitality industry was the third most targeted by cyberattacks, behind financial services and the retail sector. The landscape has evolved fast since then – and not for the better.

Criminals know that newly re-opened hotels are incorporating more technology in a bid to make guests feel ‘Covid-safe’. They also know that venues lack the expertise to secure these new digital solutions properly. Frankly, you’re easy pickings for the sophisticated cybercriminal.

Technology is of real benefit to a hotel or hospitality venue. At Castra Solutions, we work with lots of customers in these sectors who reap real rewards from innovative solutions such as touch-free check in services, in-room apps, or data-gathering loyalty schemes. But the security of these systems must be a priority.

We understand the challenges you face. Staff shortages, the loss of revenue from lockdowns and the limited on-site expertise in cyber security combine to leave vulnerabilities open to exploitation. Budgets may be tight but investing in your security posture is critical to avoid future, heavier costs. A data breach will damage your reputation, halt operational activity and require millions of pounds to remedy. Don’t risk it.
