Mathieu Gorge of VigiTrust talks about the Marriott Hotel data breach that happened back in June, including the facts of the event and why once-per-year security awareness training isn’t enough when many employees only work seven months of the year. He also offers some privacy tips that will keep your hotel system privacy compliant under a whole host of different compliance frameworks.
