The hotel industry handles loads of sensitive data on a daily basis, from the customers’ reservation information to their flight details and payment records. Having all these private data on hands makes hotels the prime targets for cyber-attacks. In the case of internationally recognised brands that house F&B and retail outlets within the hotels, it’s even more challenging to resolve the data issues. To effectively safeguarding not only your customers but also your employees’ personal data, hoteliers need to first identify the elements that roadblock your ways to success.

Embracing IoT’s endless possibilities can certainly help hoteliers create a good head start in their digital transformation journey.
