Cybercrime is an ever-present threat to modern businesses. Without up-to-date and varied IT security measures, successful hacks can compromise your customers’ and employees’ sensitive data and harm your systems, resulting in costly downtime, and worse.
Just recently, Donald Trump’s chain of high-end hotels suffered a data breach that gave hackers access to customer credit card information. What’s worse, this breach isn’t the first incident. Just last summer, the hotel chain suffered an attack on their payment system as well, meaning whatever steps that were taken to enhance their security since then were clearly ineffective.
This is an important lesson for businesses of any size to learn: victims of a data breach are very likely to get hit again. In fact, according to the Ponemon Institute, 84% of businesses that suffer a breach will experience a second incident at some point afterwards.
CEOs and managers of small to medium-sized businesses need to think past the size of their organization and realize that everyone is at risk of not just a single, but likely multiple cyber-attacks. Without the right tools and technology to prevent hackers from stealing your information, your business is left vulnerable to a major data breach.

According to the BakerHostetler law firm, cybercrime has recently begun to focus more on businesses in the hospitality industry. Don’t let your business become the next victim. A successful attack on your business’ IT systems can have devastating effects, including:
- Data Loss: Whether it’s your employees’ personal information or that of your customers, a cybercrime incident will often result in an irreversible loss of valuable data.
- Brand Reputation: No matter what kind of damage control you attempt after a successful hack, your company’s brand will never be the same, which will greatly affect who chooses to work with you.
- Further Costs: The cost of damage control, loss of business, hefty fines for regulatory violations, and further compliance reviews will only add to your troubles after your business has been hacked.
