A hotel group which prided itself on providing 'exceptional guest service' leaked customer credit card data over a prolonged period, leading not just to significant fines levied by their credit card issuers but also a repudiation of the very brand values they laid claim to.
The hospitality sector is a high target for cyber attackers due to the volume of personal information they store and transact with and the traditional unsophisticated approach to securing that information.
