With any number of security incidents featuring in the news it’s not surprising our clients are asking how to limit the chance of their businesses being compromised.
The latest breach of travel firm Thomson’s in the UK was reported in the mainstream UK press as consumer news.
Tramada takes data security very seriously and as an ongoing, iterative process. We have recently implemented two-factor authentication (2FA) which provides an additional security step during the user log-in process. Whilst available to clients on an ‘opt-in’ basis it is a step we highly recommend.
When 2FA is first enabled, a QR (Quick Response) code will display, then it is scanned into a mobile app called Google Authenticator. The app generates a six digit code which is entered into tramada® completing the log-in process. The code is valid for 30 days when logging in from the same browser and PC. The app is simply downloaded from the app store related to the user’s device.
Other existing security features align tramada® with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). This includes password management and restriction by IP address or range.
Travel agents do need to ensure their security goes way beyond passwords to protect their clients – data security and privacy is now front page news.
