Cyber threat actors (CTAs) are groups or individuals who take advantage of cyber security vulnerabilities in computer networks and low security awareness or negligence in organisations to gain unauthorized access to their information systems and steal or otherwise affect their data and devices. Cyberattacks fall broadly under four categories: geopolitically motivated warfare, ideologically motivated activism, financially motivated crime, and emotionally motivated sabotage. Consequently, CTAs can be classified in state-sponsored actors, activists, cybercriminals, and insiders. This entry defines each one of these CTA types, offering relevant examples of their actions within the hotel, travel and tourism sector
