In recent months, three restaurant ordering platforms were the target of cyberattacks that led to the theft of more than 50,000 payment card records from at least 311 restaurants, according to the cybersecurity firm Recorded Future. The records, which were stolen from MenuDrive, Harbortouch and InTouchPOS, were posted for sale on the dark web. While cyberattacks have become so frequent across industries that they don’t necessarily make headlines for the individual businesses affected anymore, helping your restaurant become a more difficult target can go far in helping it avoid an attack. Talk to your tech vendors about the evolving best practices for avoiding a breach or managing one if it happens. It’s important to patch and update software regularly, encrypt sensitive information, upgrade devices that are no longer supported by the manufacturer, enforce strong passwords and multi-factor authentication for everyone logging on to your system, develop and enforce strong security policies for employees using their own devices at work, and train staff on an ongoing basis about the best security practices that can prevent a breach. Your insurer can also advise you on cybersecurity protections and coverages, both to help you prevent a breach and to get your business get back up and running promptly if it does experience one.
