So many little motels in out-of-the-way places, some with out-dated equipment, and POS equipment that doesn't yet encrypt at the swipe. Some are realizing that this is a challenge and are in the process of stepping things up. But, how caught up are they? Given the loyalty programs these businesses want to have, I say they need a kick in the pants to lock things down. In the mean time, keep these things in mind when you read a lodges reviews, to maintain safe Internet hygiene.
