Cybersecurity in Travel and Tourism Report Overview
The travel industry holds hugely valuable and sensitive data on every traveler. If these data points are not well protected, there are significant risks for customers. Such breaches can damage a company’s reputation. Cybercriminals exploit the vulnerabilities within a cybersecurity strategy, so a rigorous approach is central to effective risk management. To tackle cyber threats, a company’s cybersecurity strategy must involve contingency planning, outlining immediate actions, post-breach responses, and an understanding of the company’s current cyber risks.
Furthermore, as the digital ecosystems of the travel and tourism companies grow, they become more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Data is most secure when all companies across the travel and tourism value chain invest in all layers of the cybersecurity value chain.
The cybersecurity in travel and tourism thematic report provides an overview of the impact cybersecurity has on the travel sector and seeks to understand some of the contributory factors. The key trends within this theme are split into three categories: technology trends, macroeconomic trends, and regulatory trends.

Cybersecurity in Travel and Tourism Value Chain Insights
The cybersecurity value chain consists of three main areas: hardware, software, and services.
Cybersecurity Hardware: With chips now being used in mission-critical servers and safety-critical applications, protecting chips from cyberattacks is becoming more critical and more expensive. Systems vendors such as Apple and Amazon are increasingly designing their own chips rather than buying commercially developed devices and intellectual property (IP) created by third-party developers. These vendors are developing their own ecosystems and requirements; security is a key concern.

The travel and tourism sector is one of the most susceptible to cyberattacks, ranking third in incidents according to the Trustwave 2020 Global Security Report. With attacks becoming more common and increasingly sophisticated, the risk and impact of cyber-ignorance are escalating. The different layers of the travel and tourism value chain handle vast amounts of personal data and involve numerous individuals susceptible to human error, interacting with millions of customers in cyberspace. Therefore, given the growing sophistication of attacks, simply thoroughly investigating cybersecurity strategies in the aftermath of a cyberattack or focusing on meeting compliance obligations will not suffice, it will only lead to an endless cycle of spending.
Cybersecurity should involve contingency planning, outlining the immediate actions and post-breach responses a company should take if a cyberattack occurs, and understanding a company’s current level of cyber risk. Although these services are typically outsourced, companies should still invest in these services by creating strong partnerships with service providers to stay on top of vulnerabilities and ensure compliance requirements are met. This is especially important due to the volume of sensitive data these companies handle, especially direct suppliers. Managed security services, risk and compliance services, and post-breach responses will limit attacks and help companies respond effectively to retrieve personal data, minimizing damage to consumers. This is important as the industry has experienced a string of high-profile cyberattacks which have caused significant reputational damage. Changing travel restrictions because of COVID-19 has made a seamless booking experience increasingly expected. These are often facilitated by OTAs, allowing for changing travel arrangements and ease when booking online. Online travel booking is accelerating and is an attractive area for cybercriminals. As booking becomes more digitalized and more personal data is shared online, the exposure to security threats increases. Mobile travel apps are also common platforms for OTAs, but they have become popular endpoint targets among threat actors.

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
