Urgo Hotels & Resorts chooses VENZA for InfoSec Training

Given the high propensity for data breaches within the hospitality industry, Urgo Hotels and Resorts recently chose VENZA® to educate its associates on protecting guest data.

Both VENZA and Urgo encompass a culture that ensures every associate is part of the extended work family. Urgo Hotels & Resorts is family-owned and operated, with two generations of Urgos leading the company. “Urgo has built its reputation as a best-in-class operator by being thoughtful and careful in choosing the right partners, and by investing in training, support programs and education for its associates. Urgo chose VENZA to continue this legacy,” said Brian Urgo, Director of IT.

With the VENZA Denali® package, each property within Urgo will receive a comprehensive training program complete with eLearning, policy template library, phishing campaigns, posters/job aids, webinars and data breach coverage. In addition, VENZA Security Coaches will guide Urgo associates throughout the training process, helping to instill a culture of awareness.

“VENZA was the perfect choice to supplement Urgo’s existing security posture,” said Scott Fisher, VENZA Vice President of Sales. “VENZA’s approach of training the “human firewall” will empower Urgo associates to protect both guest and employee data.”
