The challenges that IT management teams are facing

As the methods and techniques of cybercriminals continue to evolve, IT teams are looking to combat the challenges of this new, post-COVID19 reality with reliable and automated cybersecurity tools. Their main goal is detecting and mitigating issues before they grow into real problems that can disrupt business operations.

This task is particularly complex due to the fast-changing threat landscape, lack of security awareness among users, and the expanded attack surface due to numerous employees and contractors working remotely.  

One of the best tips for success is consolidating the architecture and ensuring that all assets and users are protected with network security, endpoint protection, and threat intelligence tools. The key is finding a way to optimize time through intelligent automation of the tasks and processes aimed at ensuring network security. It is essential that the IT management team receives real-time notifications of any suspicious behavior and prevents users from being lured into hacker traps by downloading a file that might contain malware. If informed in time, IT teams can address network security issues and prevent compromised devices from further infecting the network. 

The pandemic has led to a 600% increase in attacks against large and small hotels, restaurants, and other companies, forcing businesses to prioritize cyber risk management. This is especially true now that business trips are resuming and work from anywhere policies are being adopted by companies worldwide. Guests are increasingly concerned about the security of the Wi-Fi they use to connect to corporate assets while working remotely.

The hospitality industry is an enticing target for criminals mainly due to their databases, which store gigabytes of sensitive customer data, including Payment Card Information (PCI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Hackers view this as a lucrative assault vector for crimes such as identity theft and credit card fraud. Besides, the spike in lateral movement attacks has shown that hackers are turning unprotected networks into gateways for targeted attacks on businesses.

With regards to share of incidents, hospitality ranked third, with 13% of cybersecurity breaches taking place within this industry.
