Cybercriminals don’t discriminate when it comes to picking their target and as long as they see a potential target, they will normally attack tirelessly until they achieve their goal. In a typical example, the Marriot Starwood group of Hotels was one of the top brands, which was affected by data breaches in the hospitality industry. However, the hotel actually had its own serious flaws, which were exposed in a major data breaches report. The attack consisted of about 327 million victims whose names, addresses, bank card numbers and contact details were accessed. Although Marriot was fast to act and took a dive once the word was out, the damage was already done. Marriot has suffered a tainted reputation, which burdens them to this day.
