There doesn’t seem to be a day that goes by without a story about cybersecurity and data breaches reaching our media stands. Sadly, the travel industry is not immune. In fact, some of the biggest names in travel have fallen victim to cybercriminals, who hack into their systems to gain access to sensitive client data.
With disruptions and consequences being severe, and cybercriminals becoming increasingly sophisticated, business travelers are now finding themselves on the front line in the battle to keep their data safe. At the same time, as business travel itself moves towards becoming more convenient (with Wi-Fi on tap and ‘work anywhere’ capabilities), the potential risks become exponentially higher.
Fortunately, there are simple steps that your organization and your travelers can take to substantially reduce the risks of potential cyber breaches while traveling. We recently shared some of the risk areas – and quick ways to minimize them – here on the Atlas.
