The Brand Mandate: Marriott, Hilton, and Beyond
In response to growing cyber threats, leading hospitality brands like Marriott and Hilton have started mandating stringent cybersecurity measures for their properties. This move isn't just about protecting individual hotels; it's about safeguarding the reputation and integrity of the overarching brand. As executives, it's crucial to understand that compliance with these new standards isn't optional. Failing to meet them could mean risking your brand affiliation and the myriad benefits it brings.
