As travel rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic it has emerged as among the top target for criminals looking to take advantage of the sector’s cyber vulnerability. Rising bookings, remote teams, fragmented technology and travel’s innate vulnerabilities are all contributing to a surge in attacks on the sector.

With finances severely damaged by the pandemic, travel firms cannot afford to become the victims of a malicious attack that could be avoided by the right measures and technology.

According to the 2019 IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Index, the transportation industry is the second most-attached sector, up from seventh in 2017. The World Travel and Tourism Council has estimated that Cybercrime has cost the global economy $1 trillion and could reach $90 trillion by 2030. A report compiled with Microsoft found that 72% SMEs in the UK, the US, and Europe have suffered at least one cyber attack.

The Travolution Cyber Summit will bring industry professionals and cyber and technology experts together to discuss the threat and what can be done to protect the sector. Our half-day event will feature presentations and panel discussions featuring leading experts in cyber and travel technology to shed light and share best practice on this vital area.

Coffee break
Cyberthreat Landscape and why do attackers target businesses in the travel and tourism industry?

Both cyber-attacks and IT infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated on their own. Learn more about the newest cyber-attack trends of cyber criminals, from QR phishing emails to living off-the-land attacks. Learn how attackers breach companies. The easiest way in is often via your trusted tools and partner. Many business owners lack the time and resources to face cybersecurity issues alone, so they turn to IT Service Providers. Attacks on the software supply chain, hijacked MSP tools, and compromised supporter accounts are becoming more common. In this session, we will highlight how cybercriminals are abusing the current complexity and how to stay alert.

Ross Goodburn, channel development manager, eSentire
