Building an adaptive security program for the hotel industry

By Dileep Sreedharan, Information Security Director of the Jumeirah Group | 20 Dec 16

Cyber attacks in the hotel industry are on the rise, and in particular, this year, there has been a series of high- profile data breaches affecting payment cards and guest data. Experts had already warned that the hotel industry would be the next big target for cybercriminals. Cyber criminals are releasing technology-focused malware such as MalumPoS that are designed to target systems running point of sale systems. The industry is also facing an unprecedented technology revolution that provides innovative solutions either to enhance the guest experience or to improve the operational efficiency of staffs. For the Hotel Yearbook, Jumeirah’s Dileep Sreedharan provides a practical guide to security.
