With the mass adoption of hybrid and remote work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the corporate network perimeter as we knew it ceased to exist. The attack surface now extends beyond office walls to the locations of all remote employees, giving rise to a new spectrum of security concerns.
As IT specialists are increasing their efforts to modernize security architecture in response to new challenges, cybercriminals are adapting by increasing the sophistication of attack mechanisms.
With the larger attack surface and more connected devices at the edge of the network, threat intelligence teams are facing higher pressure and responsibility. Analyzing vast amounts of data, and detecting anomalous behavior before it causes any damage is essential for ensuring security.
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.
