Hospitality & Retail Industry Cyber Security

An Industry Targeted By Cyber Criminals

Restaurants, Hotels & Retailers

Large hotel franchises, retailers and corporate restaurant chains may be able to afford sophisticated cybersecurity protection, but smaller companies don’t have the budgets or the time to stay ahead of the threats. Yet finding affordable, flexible partners is a challenge.


Cyber Defense International was founded on the principal of making large-scale cybersecurity operations affordable to all businesses, and it’s our pleasure to help all clients be as resilient as their larger competitors.

Cybersecurity Partnership

Thinking about technology and learning how to protect your business and customers from a cyber attack isn’t why you started your business, but it is why we started ours.

Cyber Defense International is here to own the burden of managing cybersecurity operations for you so that you can focus on what you love doing most – creating great experiences for your customers.

Affordable, Business-Specific Cybersecurity Services

Cyber Defense International offers services customized for restaurants, hotel franchisors and small retailers to protect your business and your customers. Our services include:

  • Continuous detection and response to cyber attacks, including POS malware and data theft
  • Detection of employee fraud with our video surveillance and analysis services
  • Business assessments and employee training
  • Reporting and consulting to support PCI audits

The Ponemon Institute found that 93% of all hospitality breaches were caused by POS intrusion, web applications, or crimeware, and 70% of all data breaches resulted in data loss.

Worse than that, an organization’s brand value drops 17% – 31% following a data breach and takes up to one year to be restored.

Security operations helps monitor for those weird logins in the middle of the night. If you can justify it in your budget, a security operations team is a must. Even if you can’t afford an in-house team, contracting it as a service or requiring it to be a part of your POS or IT contracts will cover you and allow you to benefit from economies of scale.
