Protect Your Hotel from a Data Breach

Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting hotels, from independent hotels to large chains. There have been many high profile hotel breaches over the years, such as the Hilton Worldwide hotel chain breach, which saw customer credit card information being leaked, and the incident at White Lodging, a hotel franchise management company, also resulting in the loss of debit and credit card data. This highlights the importance of having an effective security solution in place, and this is exactly what Retail Secure can provide you with.

RetailCompli is our leading cloud-based network security solution. It can lower the possibility of a data breach at your hotel by a significant degree while also making sure you achieve PCI compliance. PCI DSS is a set of requirements that all businesses need to follow if they process, transmit, or store cardholder data, irrespective of how frequently they do so. So, if you take payments by card you need to comply with the 12 requirements that are outlined by the PCI DSS.

A lot of hotel owners aren’t concerned with cyber security, as they have the ‘it won’t happen to me’ attitude. This is especially the case for independent hotels and small chains. They assume that hackers are only interested in the big chains, but that is not the case. Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting smaller businesses because they know they probably don’t have the resources to invest heavily in security systems and personnel. Could you really come back from a data breach? Not only will you face fraud losses, but also you will have huge non-compliance fines to pay and you will have suffered a massive hit to your reputation.

With RetailCompli, you don’t need to break the bank. We will separate all sensitive data from the rest of the traffic on your network. We do this by creating a separate Cardholder Data Environment (CDE). This ensures that access to all confidential data is restricted and thus the chance of a data breach occurring is reduced by a considerable degree. The benefits of our service do not end there; with everything from 24-hour monitoring to a sophisticated firewall, you can be sure that we have everything in place to protect your business.

If you have any further questions, or would like to take the necessary steps to protect your business, please don’t hesitate to contact us by calling +44 (0) 333 320 8848 or sending an email to and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
