Sabre breach ‘a wake-up call’, ITB hears
Travel industry leaders have insisted consumers can have "confidence in how their data is stored" despite growing concern about cyber security and after Google was fined €50 million under Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Sabre's SynXis hotel reservations system suffered a breach in 2016-17 which saw unauthorised access to credit card details, including card security codes.
Speaking at German travel trade show ITB in Berlin, Anderson said: "We had a data breach 24 months ago. It was a day of awakening for us."
