The majority of hotel companies are unaware of the specific laws or are unsure of the industry best practices when it comes to PCI compliance and data security. Did you know that 46 states have enacted data privacy legislation? Do you know how those laws could impact your hotels?
According to Trustwaves Global Security Report 2010, hackers are focusing on the hospitality industry. According to the report over 35 percent of all breaches in 2009 occurred within the hospitality industry. Ninety-eight percent of those breaches involved credit cards.
But what about your internal financial data? Who has access to that information? Do you know who is accessing that information? Do they have legitimate reason to access that information?
