LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 17, 2021 / — Next generation cyber technology company provides focused solutions to combat rising cyber threats to the hospitality industry.

Lisbon, Portugal, 18th November: Assured Cyber Protection® announced today that the company’s CEO, Mitchell Scherr, has been selected as a keynote speaker at The Leading Hotels of the World’s 2021 Annual Convention. Placing cybersecurity prominently on the conference agenda is recognition of the rising importance of this topic for the industry and their customers.

The coronavirus pandemic presented significant challenges for the hospitality industry with many hotels and restaurants closing because of a lack of business. As those in hospitality begin to welcome back their guests there is another looming concern and that’s digitalisation. As the fourth industrial revolution introduces opportunity and new ways of working, it also exposes the industry to a heightened risk of cyberattack.

“Digital transformation and the necessity to meet customer needs in a rapidly-changing digitally-enabled world, presents problems for hotels. Customers are looking for efficiency and an altogether smoother guest experience. Technology has become a key enabler to business, but it has exposed organisations to exponential cyber risk.” said Scherr. “We are already working with prestigious hotels to meet their cyber challenges and we are extremely honoured to participate at The Leading Hotels of the World convention,” he added.

In addition to the keynote, Scherr and his team will meet with individual hotel representatives at the conference’s market place. They will discuss how they address the risks posed at the human/technology interface and how human and organisational behaviours can increase cyber risk. These sessions will use virtual reality technology to give representatives a real immersive experience to highlight cyber risk.

“We are delighted to welcome Assured Cyber Protection to our Annual Convention,” said Michael Lederman, Vice President of Information Technology, The Leading Hotels of the World. “Having a specialist cyber security company like ACP join us at this event highlights the rising importance of security to the hospitality industry.”

According to a recent report, commissioned by ACP, last year the hospitality industry accounted for 13% of total cybersecurity incidents. With that number expected to rise, and hundreds of millions of people travelling each year, cyber safety has emerged as a major business risk for all hotels, and especially those catering to a clientele where security is a primary concern.
