Travel and tour companies are not immune to cyber crime
September 25, 2018
Recent news stories focus on cyber attacks against large corporations, but 43% of the victims of cyber crime are small businesses.* Though it did not make the nightly news, Desktop computers containing 300,000 customer names, addresses, emails, and credit card info were stolen from a Las Vegas tour operator’s office.**
As travel agents and tour operators in possession of customers’ confidential information, it’s critical to protect your business from a potential privacy data breach.
