VENZA Partnership Supports Breckenridge Grand Vacations’ Commitment to Data Security and PCI 3.2 Compliance

(Atlanta, GA – August 5, 2016) VENZA® is partnering with Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV), the parent company of such properties as Gold Point Resort, Grand Timber Lodge, the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 and the Grand Colorado on Peak 8, to equip its staff with essential PCI awareness training in order to minimize risk and keep guest data safe.

“A strong cyber-resilient strategy has become an essential operating requirement for every hospitality organization today, particularly in light of the recent release of PCI DDS version 3.2,” says Jeff Venza, VENZA’s president and CEO. “BGV’s proactive approach is a testament to their leaders’ commitment to not only comply with the latest standards but also provide a positive, safe and worry-free guest experience.”

With recent reports estimating that the hospitality industry’s cybercrime costs topped $8.2 million in 2015, more organizations are focusing on proactive prevention and protection steps to mitigate data security vulnerabilities, reduce the risk of fraud and give their guests greater peace of mind.

“Providing employees with training that guarantees a culture of excellence in customer service is integral to our mission,” says Scott Britz, IT Operations Manager, Breckenridge Grand Vacations. “VENZA’s deep expertise and successful track record in the hospitality industry are helping us deliver on that promise in the areas of data security and compliance.”

BGV is currently rolling out VENZA’s information security curriculum, recently updated to reflect the new requirements of PCI 3.2, at four of its properties. Because employees are the first line of defense in fighting security and data fraud, the VENZA information security solution is designed to raise their awareness of requirements and regularly reinforce their knowledge to help minimize risk.
