We are postponing the March 15 NCCoE Speaker Series: Improving the Customer Experience Without Increasing Cyber Risk - A Hospitality Challenge due to potential hazardous weather conditions in the Rockville area. We are working on finding another date to have this event. Stay tuned for an update on date and time for this event! We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event date and time.
Recent, high-profile hotel hacks have brought increasing attention to the hospitality sector and its cybersecurity challenges. While hospitality organizations have long supported the internal flow of information and data (e.g. allowing a hotel guest to charge dinner from the hotel restaurant to his/her room), technological improvements and customer demands have pushed hotels to offer increasing amenities, such as free Wi-Fi or mobile check-in. Through collaboration with the hospitality industry, the NCCoE is developing an example solution to help organizations strengthen the security of their property management system to better protect the business against network intrusion, data breach, fraud loss, and damage to reputation, while continuing to allow customers and guests to utilize and appreciate a hotel’s technological amenities. Join us in person or online for a lively discussion on the unique trends and challenges to improving cybersecurity in the hospitality sector.

Insider threats are growing at an alarming rate, with medium-to-large company losses averaging over $4 million every year. Smaller businesses are at risk too, and it is estimated that in 2014, over half of all cyber attacks targeted companies with less than 1,000 employees. The majority of these breaches are caused accidentally by internal employees or contractors.
