Transportation, Logistics, and Hospitality Data Protection FAQs

Why is transportation data important?

Transportation data can be used to determine operational risks, enhance communication, secure proprietary data, and augment supply chain accessibility. Industries use this data in multiple ways, including predictive analytics and establishing more efficient cloud-based platforms. Detailed customer data can inform organizations as to what, when, and where customers are buying. This information can identify loyal and lost customers, popular and unpopular products and services, and the timelines and frequency of buying orders. Organizations can then use these insights to effectively improve customer satisfaction by changing service offerings or merchandising, improving targeted customer outreach, and preparing for the busiest times of the year. Analyzed data leads to greater efficiencies and shorter lead times.

What are the biggest cybersecurity risks to the transportation industry?
