Anatomy of a Hotel Data Breach

Data breach incidents have dominated the news in 2014, and they are only becoming more frequent and damaging. Every industry and every type of business has been a victim of cyber intruders or other types of data loss or theft. Information criminals take everything from sensitive corporate trade secrets to customer or employee personal information, including credit card account numbers, bank account codes, social security numbers, e-mail addresses and other items useful in carrying out identity theft. Security industry experts have estimated that 78% of all companies and organizations in the United States suffered some sort of data loss or theft within the past two years.
