As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater convenience through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to make for a truly seamless hospitality experience. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from booking to entertainment can also mean that hospitality networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
Exposing data or suffering downtime not only creates risks to patient safety, supports identity theft and damages the hospital's reputation, but can also result in signi?cant HIPAA penalties. The costs include the time your staff spends responding to the attack and lost productivity when systems are unavailable or work needs to be redone. Investing in computer and network security is a smart ?nancial decision for hospitals.
Never have Distributed Denial of Service attacks been more present globally, and it’s time for the hospitality industry to take notice. They have shut down of?ces, caused ransom-like threats, and created an atmosphere where a sophisticated attack could come from almost anywhere at almost any time.
In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to hospitality networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more information on our network, we increase our risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data. Customers expect to be able do everything online, and won’t tolerate any interruption in service. This expectation inhibit a situation where an attacker is holds your web services hostage, and you have to choose between paying them off or apologizing to a lot of angry customers.
