Ground Labs Exposes Credit Card Data Theft in Hotels at HITEC 2013
SEATTLE, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — As criminals continue to breach the security of credit card data stored within businesses of all sizes, hotels that store guests’ payment information are increasingly making data security a top priority.
To assist hotels and other businesses in the hospitality industry minimise the likelihood of suffering a data breach, Ground Labs will be providing live simulations of dangerous hotel credit card data storage processes at the HITEC 2013 Conference and Exhibition to be held in the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 24 – 27, 2013. The annual event is the world’s largest hospitality technology show and brings together professionals involved in financial management, revenue management and information technology within the hospitality industry.
Ground Labs is a global leader in the development of security and auditing software solutions for the payment card industry. Its flagship products, Card Recon and Enterprise Recon, are used by many of the world’s largest hotel brands to identify sensitive credit card data stored across a computer network. By using these products, hotels can help prevent security breaches that result in the theft of customers’ credit and debit card numbers.
“Hotels both large and small have been storing customer credit card transactions on computer systems for many years, and therefore face significant risks and financial liability in the event of a data breach,” says Russell Poffenroth, North America Director of Corporate Development. “Our involvement with HITEC 2013 offers a prime opportunity to demonstrate the simple approaches that can be used to help hotels identify and secure their data whilst achieving compliance with PCI data security standards.”
The HITEC 2013 Conference and Exhibition is an annual four-day conference hosted by HFTP (Hospitality Financial & Technology Professionals), which since 1952 has been serving members from across the hospitality industry including financial management, revenue management and information technology professionals. Additional information about HITEC 2013 is available online at www.hftp.org.
