With the ever-escalating security issues the world faces, particularly around increased global cyber-security threats, we want to reassure you that, no matter what the risks are, companies and their travellers are safe with Gray Dawes Travel.
Given the current climate, it’s understandable organisations of all sizes may be curious about what travel management companies are doing to mitigate the increased risk of a security breach. In short, here at Gray Dawes we’re all over it!
No matter what’s happening in the world, Gray Dawes has the backs of our client base!
While the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) has no specific intelligence relating to a cyber-attack on the UK, this could change quickly. We monitor multiple government websites for updates each day. We regularly maintain protocols to help protect our networks and clients from this type of attack and have increased our network security reviews during this unprecedented time.
Areas of security reviewed include firewall rules, network access, anti-virus definitions, and windows and software patches, which are recorded in a logged audit file. We have also been performing test restorations from our backup solution to ensure that in any possible situation, we can restore our data effectively. Most importantly, we are ensuring that all Gray Dawes employees understand the significance of cyber security and know how to identify and report suspected security events, especially during the current period of heightened threat.
As well as the increased security protocols we have in place to protect our IT infrastructure and your data, we’re doing just as much to protect your travellers. Of course, being a Gray Dawes Travel client, you’re already used to our around the clock support; travellers and bookers alike can contact a Gray Dawes Travel consultant 24/7 and 365 days per year. And our innovative suite of Traveller Security products have been designed specifically to meet your duty of care obligations while keeping your travellers safe.
YourTrip Cares provides safety and risk insights on the travel destination right from the time of booking your trip, while providing alerts and notifications for those travelling and a centralised global monitoring solution for your back office. The intelligence it offers allows for more informed travel choices, gives reassurance to your travellers and peace of mind for you and your organisation.
StaySafe is the indispensable new traveller security feature built-in to our booking tool, YourTrip. Tailored specifically to an individual’s travel itinerary, ongoing destination updates are delivered directly to the traveller via email and mobile messaging. These include destination alerts, flight cancellations and notifications and changes to border immigration requirements and COVID restrictions.
