IBM Center for the Business of Government, GWU Center for Cyber and Homeland Security (CCHS) and NIST are partnering to host a CISO Leadership Summit on May 3, 2017 at the IBM Center for the Business of Government in Washington, DC. The Summit is designed to bring federal and commercial CISOs, as well as the cybersecurity senior practitioners in academia, standards and research organizations together to have open dialogue on their challenges, lessons learned, best practices and innovation. The participating CISOs will gain insights from their peers’ practice experiences and techniques to overcome challenges.
Recent, high-profile hotel hacks have brought increasing attention to the hospitality sector and its cybersecurity challenges. While hospitality organizations have long supported the internal flow of information and data (e.g. allowing a hotel guest to charge dinner from the hotel restaurant to his/her room), technological improvements and customer demands have pushed hotels to offer increasing amenities, such as free Wi-Fi or mobile check-in. Through collaboration with the hospitality industry, the NCCoE is developing an example solution to help organizations strengthen the security of their property management system to better protect the business against network intrusion, data breach, fraud loss, and damage to reputation, while continuing to allow customers and guests to utilize and appreciate a hotel’s technological amenities. Join us in person or online for a lively discussion on the unique trends and challenges to improving cybersecurity in the hospitality sector.
