Restaurant businesses deal with a large amount of personal data.

The National Restaurant Association released a must-read guide for restaurant operators on how to increase their cybersecurity efforts.

Franchising, Licensing & Distribution partner Eleanor Vaida Gerhards explains on the Franchise Law Update blog how the guide takes the cybersecurity framework prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and adapts it for use in the restaurant hospitality industry.

Because restaurants have to handle the personal information of their customers, they’re constantly at risk for data compromises that carry heavy fines.

Even the most cyber savvy restaurant systems should find the guide full of useful information. Access the guide and read Eleanor’s full post here.
