The second edition of Issues & Trends for 2016  discusses the cyber criminal trends as they apply to the protection of digital assets of travellers and travel companies.

We live in the digital age where personal information and sensitive data are ubiquitous. Breaches of sensitive personal data may lead to catastrophic events. In this report we highlight the threat of cyber threats in the travel industry and the urgent need to adopt a cyber security framework to identify, monitor and control potential crises. Cybersecurity is the backbone for advancing travel innovations. With sound data protection in place, travel companies can fully leverage big data to support new products and services, revenue management, better customer relationships and more efficient operation.
