What makes the hospitality industry an attractive target for data thieves?

Historically the hospitality industry has held cardholder data across more systems and for longer compared to other industries. When data is held on point-of-sale, property management, loyalty and third party systems for use before, during and after the service is rendered, it increases the risk exposure to data breaches.

Certain technical network, hardware and software practices are common across the industry, which in turn may make it more of a target. Systems may be networked together. This may make sense operationally, but also makes it easier for attackers to enter and traverse linked networks in search of sensitive data.

Because the sector has been slower to implement EMV chip technology, its physical point-of-sale environment is not as hardened to attackers as other sectors.
