It’s been a rough year for car rental companies.
On Monday, the industry suffered a massive hack that left millions of users vulnerable.
Now, the biggest car rental company in the world is stepping up its game and is doubling down on its security measures.
The Buffalo Car Rental Group announced Tuesday that it will be doubling down in cybersecurity.
The move comes on the heels of a major hack in August that left the company’s servers inoperable.
“Security is our top priority and this is a first step towards delivering the best services and products,” said Buffalo Car Rentals CEO and Co-founder, Michael Fazio.
“The security of our users and customers is of utmost importance to us and we’re committed to keeping our networks safe.”
Buffalo Car Ransomware: Buffalo CarRentalGroup will be making significant improvements to its security posture as the company continues to invest in cybersecurity and has deployed additional cybersecurity technologies.
This will include the deployment of an internal security team and enhanced IT infrastructure.
Buffalo Car is also working with the Federal Trade Commission to strengthen its compliance.
Fazio says that the company has deployed an internal team to monitor the company and its customers for issues.
It will also be working with local law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of the security breach.
In a statement, Buffalo Car said that it is “taking immediate steps to protect our customers and their information” and will “continue to monitor and improve the security of the Buffalo Car network.”
