HFTP Hangout: Securing Property Management Systems

Thursday, May 20, 2021

NCCoE’s Bill Newhouse presents the recent hospitality publication, Securing Property Management Systems, during the Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) Virtual Education Series.  A hotel property management system (PMS) is a prime target for cyber criminals. A successful breach could give a criminal access to valuable data resulting in financial loss, operational disruption, reputational harm, and lengthy regulatory investigations and litigation. On March 30, 2021, the NIST NCCoE released Special Publication 1800-27, Securing Property Management Systems. This collaboration with the hospitality community and cybersecurity technology providers demonstrates how hospitality organizations can use a standards-based approach with commercially available technologies to protect property management systems.
