Trump continues to win, hotels continue to be breached

Hey all,
On April 4, 2016, Brian Krebs reported that Sources: Trump Hotels Breached Again and on April 5, 20116 I got a KNX text message saying he won in Wisconsin. The problem I have about this is the article indicates that he has no idea about cybersecurity, yet he talks about the fact the United States is behind. Here is the final paragraphs from Kreb’s story.


“Like most other current presidential candidates, Mr. Trump has offered little in the way of a policy playbook on cybersecurity. But in statements last month, Trump bashed the United States as “obsolete” on cybersecurity, and suggested the country is being “toyed with” by adversaries from China, Russia and elsewhere.

“We’re so obsolete in cyber,” Trump told The New York Times. “We’re the ones that sort of were very much involved with the creation, but we’re so obsolete.” Trump was critical of the US military’s cyber prowess, charging the Defense Department and the military are “going backwards” in cyber while “other countries are moving forward at a much more rapid pace.”

“We are frankly not being led very well in terms of the protection of this country,” Trump said.”


Mr. Trump, here is something. Krebs writes: “Like most other current presidential candidates, Mr. Trump has offered little in the way of a policy playbook on cybersecurity. But in statements last month, Trump bashed the United States as “obsolete” on cybersecurity, and suggested the country is being “toyed with” by adversaries from China, Russia and elsewhere.” My question to you, is this: What do you plan to do as president when you can’t keep your hotels from being breached? You’re being reported to for the 2nd, or is it 3rd time, not sure, but for a president, this can’t be good.

Krebs also writes: ““We’re so obsolete in cyber,” Trump told The New York Times. “We’re the ones that sort of were very much involved with the creation, but we’re so obsolete.” Trump was critical of the US military’s cyber prowess, charging the Defense Department and the military are “going backwards” in cyber while “other countries are moving forward at a much more rapid pace.”” If you’re quoted in this paragraph, what as president are you planning to do to fix this so we as the United States can catch up to others since you say we’re behind? Finally, you are quoted: ““We are frankly not being led very well in terms of the protection of this country,” Trump said.” If this is the case, then how do you want to fix it?

You’ve won quite a lot. You’ve also bashed other candidates. You’ve got a lot of money, but you can’t keep your hotels as secure as humanly possible. If this is the third time, you’re really screwed. If this is the 2nd time, why haven’t you fixed your holes or told your security team to do so after they alerted you what was wrong?

Luckily, these breaches have not hit the front desk of any hotel chain, but I surmise they’re going to be next. Trump, you’ve got a lot of work to do. You really do.
