Dark Web, where data breaches last for months

Data breaches can bother victims for several months after the initial event. And for the hotel industry these violations are a common phenomenon, which must be dealt with effectively.


This is mainly due to the fact that Criminals at cyberspace constantly sell data to Dark Web and utilize the information to launch highly targeted phishing scams. For example, the infringement its data MGM which became known earlier this year, reported for the first time that the figures of MGM's 10 million visitors were exposed online. But with the continued sale of this data on the Dark Web, that number could rise to at least 142 million visitors.

Every year, hotels and resorts collect a lot of personal data of millions of customers, which they store in their systems.

In the case mentioned above, some of the violated visitor information, such as dates of birth, telephone numbers, home addresses and e-mail addresses, belonged to government officials, celebrities and well-known business executives. Incidents like this underscore the vitality of ensuring that proper security controls are in place in cloud to maintain data security.

In order to reduce the risk of future attacks like this, it is very important that hotel units take care of the security and control of their customers' personal data. Utilizing the security solutions that circulate and offer real-time access control, detect incorrect configurations through cloud security management, encrypt sensitively data and manage data sharing with external parties and prevent leakage data, organizations can ensure confidentiality and safety of their customer information.
