How the Hospitality Industry Confronts Cybersecurity Threats that Never Take Vacations
Amy Terry Sheehan
Cybersecurity Law Report
Technology offers travelers the convenience they value – such as software that recalls a frequent traveler’s preferences, room key cards that act as charge cards at resort restaurants, stores and more. However, these amenities come with risks to the travelers (as well as responsibilities for the company offering the convenience) relating to the collection of sensitive data. In this interview with the Cybersecurity Law Report, Eileen Ridley, a partner at Foley & Lardner, discusses the hospitality industry’s specific data privacy and cybersecurity challenges, and offers best practices in the collection, storage and protection of the increasing amount of personal data these companies are holding.
In honor of International Women’s Day, some of ION Analytics' editorial teams led by women interviewed notable women in the markets and industries we cover. In this part, the Cybersecurity Law Report highlighted notable women in compliance and hedge fund, data privacy and cybersecurity, and anti-corruption law, including Amii Barnard-Bahn, Abigail Bell, Genna Garver, Jane Horvath, Barbara Li, Amy Mushahwar, Mara Senn and Carol Widger. The interviews are here.
