The article discusses few steps that can be taken to evaluate and improve the security surrounding the privacy of a company's customers and employees. It asserts that there should be an inventory of applications which involves not only looking at the company's network and work stations to see what is installed, but involves checking licensing to verify the user have the legal right to use the software. Regular audit should be performed. If the audit is comprehensive yet short and the questions are simple and clearly stated without much technical jargon, then even the smallest hotels should he able to perform an audit on their own.
