Your Restaurant Cybersecurity Plan:

The PLATE Framework

Taking the steps to prepare for, repond to, and recover from restaurant cyber attacks.



All it takes is the swipe of a card.

Even some of the biggest restaurant chains in the country have been the reported victims of credit card hacks. So what can you do to prevent a similar crisis in your restaurant?

At Toast, we developed the PLATE Framework for restaurant cybersecurity. Combining resources from government, technology, and security council standards, it is designed to secure your restaurant's sensitive data. 

By understanding how to perceive threats, limit risks, attribute the source of attacks, take action, and evolve from experience,  the information of your restaurant and its customers will be more secure.
