If you stayed at any Marriott or its related properties- you have been the victim of a data hack – FIGHT BACK – contact us now.

 

In what is being reported as the largest data breach in history – Marriott International announced Friday, November 30, 2018 that up to 500 million guests’ personal information has been compromised.

 

The data breach includes names, email addresses, passport numbers and payment information – including credit card data. According to the Washington Post, the breach “involved information mined from the reservations database for Starwood properties, which include Sheraton, Westin and St. Regis hotels, among others.”

 

Marriott International, one of the largest hotel chains in the world, operates over 6,700 hotels and properties in over 140 countries and territories. 

 

While the announcement of the data breach is new, Marriott has disclosed that the hackers have had access to the database since 2014. The hotel giant stated that if had learned of an unauthorized party was accessing the company’s systems on September 8, 2018 but due to the hackers’ ability to conceal what exact information was being stolen – Marriott was unable to decrypt the stolen information until November 19, 2018.

 

Marriott’s CEO, Arne Sorenson, said in a news release, “We are doing everything we can to support our guests, and using lessons learned to be better moving forward.”

 

When you go on vacation, or travel for work, you shouldn’t have to worry about being a company’s “learning experience”.
