If you’ve ever experienced ID theft, you totally understand and can empathize with other victims about what a frustrating and scary experience it is. My mother is currently going through this, and my family and I are trying to help her as the perpetrators have tried to commandeer her financial accounts, pension and Social Security checks, as well as her credit cards. Sadly as a longtime U.S. government worker, her data was compromised by very skilled cyberthieves who successfully hacked into the U.S. government data bank.

Along with many other cyberattacks on large and secure companies, it was only a matter of time before they targeted our travel and meetings industry. The most recent victim happens to be an industry behemoth — Sabre, of all companies.  Here’s the BTN story.

Scary, isn’t it? In a timely manner, Alison Hall from MeetingsNet just published a smart, easy-to-implement list of six best practices to shore up cybersecurity for your meetings and events — especially how you can protect your event on-site. To summarize her six tips:
  1. Know the Venue’s Legitimate Networks
  2. Watch for Rogues
  3. Change the Password
  4. Check the Cell Signals
  5. What to Ask Your Mobile App Developer
  6. Know the Hazards of Registration Kiosks
For complete details on these valuable best practices, you can read Alison’s article here.
Do yourself, your employer and your attendees a big favor — don’t take cybersecurity lightly. This is serious and dangerous, and rest assured the cyberhackers don’t rest or take holidays. Neither should you.
