Compass reviews the very real risk that cyber crime poses to park businesses
It is hard to exaggerate the damage a cyber attack could inflict on a park business.
A fraudulent email, for example, can release ransomware, viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, adware, crimeware and scareware. Any of these can crush a park’s operations by interrupting normal services and stealing information and data.
Cyber criminals are constantly developing their techniques, making it hugely challenging to spot a fraudulent email. For parks with employees, preventing one slip by one individual 24/7 can be very difficult to manage.

5 key areas where automating daily tasks can save you valuable time and effort
1. Automated Booking Process
Following a successful eight week trial period, Lancashire-based holiday park operator, Ribby Hall, has awarded a Northumberland-based IT start-up firm operating in the communications infrastructure sector, a major new contract to bring superfast and reliable WiFi to its holiday village.
Set up in December 2015, by directors Claire Hollyman and Kev Latimer, Trench Networks Limited (Trench Networks) created Outpost a one-box, wireless internet access solution using sophisticated technology designed by Mr Latimer.
A family-run holiday park company that boasts almost 100 years of history is embracing modern-day efficiency with state-of-the-art technology.
Lyons Holiday Parks needed to integrate transactions in bars, offices, hotels, shops, and reception areas across seven of its ten sites across North Wales and Cumbria.
Previously the company used a number of isolated tills and processes. These did not link with its central accounts system, meaning staff had to input much of the sales data captured manually. This was time consuming and inefficient, hampering business growth.
