Artificial Intelligence Used to Protect Passport Data at Singapore Travel Firm

November 18, 2019

Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, has today announced that travel company Global Travel, a Singapore Top 500 Enterprise, has deployed artificial intelligence to protect confidential traveler information, including passport data.

With more than 40 years of experience in corporate and leisure travel, Global Travel’s reputation in Singapore is well-established. The company takes cyber security seriously in light of the numerous cyber-attacks wielded on organizations all over the world, where cyber-criminals look to steal or compromise personal information.

While the company complies with Singaporean data privacy regulations under the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), Global Travel selected Darktrace to dramatically strengthen its security posture. It relies on Darktrace’s world-leading cyber AI to not only monitor its digital systems 24/7, but also to act on its behalf when the AI spots malicious activity occurring. This ‘machine fights back’ capability is known in the industry as Autonomous Response, and enables computer-speed attacks to be quelled in a matter of seconds.

Given our national standing and the regulatory frameworks in place, an attack on our enterprise would be nothing short of a crisis,” commented James Chua, General Manager at Global Travel. “Darktrace Autonomous Response has been the crucial difference between an emerging threat and a crisis. Using AI to autonomously block attacks within seconds, we can feel confident that our data is protected from cyber-criminals – despite our industry becoming more vulnerable by the day.”
