An Underserved Industry Targeted by Cyber Criminals

Restaurants, hotel franchises and small retailers have long been an underserved client base in cybersecurity.  Yet these businesses are some of the most targeted among cyber criminals.

While commercial technology products are used to operate and serve your customers, cyber criminals can easily find their way into your business.

The Ponemon Institute found that 93% of all hospitality breaches were caused by POS intrusion, web applications, or crimeware, and 70% of all data breaches resulted in data loss.

Worse than that, an organization’s brand value drops 17% - 31% following a data breach and takes up to one year to be restored.

"Security operations helps monitor for those weird logins in the middle of the night. If you can justify it in your budget, a security operations team is a must.
