BY ADAM BERNSTEIN

A new process for handling online card payments could soon stop customer purchases if traders don’t comply with the new rules. Adam Bernstein explains the change.

Online fraud is huge and according to Finextra Research, between 2017 and 2018, £4.1bn was stolen as a result of this type of theft. And to illustrate how personal the problem is, the firm quotes a survey commissioned by comparethemarket.com of 2,000 UK adults which showed that 22% of those surveyed were defrauded in the last year this way.

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.

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.
