Travel in 2021: Are Bots Threatening the Industry?


Article Contents

    The last 12 months have seen the travel industry shut down almost completely as borders were closed, and the global population was brought to a standstill. With the industry set to reopen over the coming months, cybersecurity must be a high priority in the hospitality and travel industry, as bots look to disrupt hotel bookings, staycations and international travel.

    Bots use a range of techniques to disrupt the booking process across various areas of the travel industry. With the rush for holiday bookings on the horizon and more people looking to secure last-minute domestic deals, it’s important to remain vigilant and prepared to deal with the consequences of bot activity.

    Backed by bot-based research conducted by our Threat Research team, this whitepaper uncovers the top three threats set to hit the travel industry in 2021.

    What you’ll learn:

    • How denial of inventory, web scraping and account takeover bots threaten the travel industry
    • How bot attacks could damage the brand reputation, customer loyalty and profit of travel organisations
