InfoSecurity Magazine reports that the historic New York hotel, The Martinique New York on Broadway, will soon offer a pilot program called Cyber Safe Travel. The product is designed to protect its guests’ personal data from potential cyber-attacks during their stay.
“Providing our guests with an unparalleled travel experience is our top priority at the Martinique,” says Joseph Delgado, director of finance at the Martinique. “Offering a way to help protect them against one of today’s most pervasive threats — cyber thefts — is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to our guests’ best-in-class experience.”
The program was designed by full-service risk management, cybersecurity and training company Cino Ltd, using keystroke encryption, advanced login breach protection and screen scraper technologies to protect hotel guests' mobile devices. Cyber Safe Travel is powered by StrikeForce Technologies’ military-grade technology, and comes with a click-jacking attack warning feature to help mitigate cyber threats.
For $3 a day, guest of the hotel can add Cyber Safe Travel protection to up to three mobile devices for three days. They will also be offered the option to purchase annual protection for $24.99. Cino will compensate The Martinique for each of their guests who signs up for the Cyber Safe Travel protection. While the hotel industry is first to launch, the plan is to eventually roll out the product to airlines, cruise ships, trains, tour businesses and even/meeting planners, according to StrikeForce.
