Why safeguarding information matters to the Chief Commercial Officer

Celia Pereiro

Head of Payments, Amadeus IT Group

That’s why Amadeus is today launching the whitepaper “Safeguarding information systems: A lever for revenue growth” which brings together analysis, expert contributors and real world examples to give a comprehensive overview on data  care, the rising impact of fraud, and the response of the industry. The paper provides talking points for security professionals looking to convince their commercial counterparts of the importance of taking good care of the data they are responsible for and for commercial executives looking to get up to speed on how they can use security to unlock top line revenue growth. We hope to inform and stimulate a conversation on among those in the travel industry whose responsibilities include the commercial well-being of their business.

 

As more and more of our business and personal lives are conducted online, the risk of account takeover or identity theft are ever greater. In addition to the impact on the affected individuals, this creates very real costs for companies. According to data from the Payment Cards Industry Data Security Standards council, cybercrime costs the victim company an average of 2.6 million dollars. However it also creates an opportunity: safeguarding information can be a lever for revenue growth for travel companies which do it well. To achieve this, Chief Information Security Officers must gain the buy-in of the whole organization.
