SEATTLE, JUNE 5, 2013 — /PRNewswire/ -- As criminals continue to
breach the security of credit card data stored within businesses of
all sizes, hotels that store guests' payment information are
increasingly making data security a top priority.

To assist hotels and other businesses in the hospitality industry
minimise the likelihood of suffering a data breach, Ground Labs will
be providing live simulations of dangerous hotel credit card data
storage processes at the HITEC 2013 Conference and Exhibition to be
held in the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on
June 24 - 27, 2013. The annual event is the world's largest
hospitality technology show and brings together professionals involved
in financial management, revenue management and information technology
within the hospitality industry.

Ground Labs is a global leader in the development of security and
auditing software solutions for the payment card industry. Its
flagship products, Card Recon and Enterprise Recon, are used by many
of the world's largest hotel brands to identify sensitive credit card
data stored across a computer network. By using these products, hotels
can help prevent security breaches that result in the theft of
customers' credit and debit card numbers.

"Hotels both large and small have been storing customer credit card
transactions on computer systems for many years, and therefore face
significant risks and financial liability in the event of a data
breach," says Russell Poffenroth, North America Director of Corporate
Development. "Our involvement with HITEC 2013 offers a prime
opportunity to demonstrate the simple approaches that can be used to
help hotels identify and secure their data whilst achieving compliance
with PCI data security standards."

The HITEC 2013 Conference and Exhibition is an annual four-day
conference hosted by HFTP (Hospitality Financial & Technology
Professionals), which since 1952 has been serving members from across
the hospitality industry including financial management, revenue
management and information technology professionals. Additional
information about HITEC 2013 is available online at www.hftp.org.
