Cyber Security SeminarPDF Hotel Council of San Francisco
David Lee and Rana Nader presented a Cyber Security Seminar hosted by the Hotel Council of San Francisco at the San Francisco Marriott Union Square on May 28, 2015. They examined how members of the hospitality industry can implement relatively simple yet effective procedures to safeguard against cyber-attacks and respond to data breaches in the event that one should occur. Hotels and purveyors in the food and beverage industry are consistently rated as primary targets of cyber-attacks. These attacks can be both external as well as internal, and therefore, maintaining a comprehensive security system, along with up-to-date policies and procedures, is critical. They discussed how to maintain compliance with the most recent laws relative to cyber security, implement effective policies and procedures to safeguard and properly dispose of sensitive data, and train employees on best practices to ensure the highest level of cyber security.
