Front Desk

Maybe Heist Not So Historic

No updated information has come from the Best Western “greatest cyber-heist in world history” report, which has me thinking the membership organization's number of 10 customers affected is a lot closer to reality than the Scottish newspaper's number of eight million.

The original story seemed so sensational, and somewhat vague, I was half expecting to see Sean Connery as the front-desk clerk/secret operative in a major motion picture coming to theatres near you.

Who knows what actually happened, but it's a scary thought that something like that is even possible. Even if the number is only 10, that's little consolation to those affected.

It just goes to show how important it is for companies—and individuals—to protect their private information.
