There have been several high-profile cyber-attacks against the hospitality sector in recent years that have caused the victims significant financial loss and reputational damage. Customers are everything to the industry so not being able to secure sensitive customer data can be particularly harmful. 

The hospitality sector has also rushed to embrace digital technology, a process hastened by the Covid-19 pandemic that in some cases has left it exposed to cyber criminals and other threat actors.
