Data Breach at Hyatt Hotels

Data Breach at Hyatt Hotels

December 28, 2015         Written By Natalie Rutledge

On December 23, Chicago-based Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced it had identified malware on its computers that process payments, which means customer credit card information may have been stolen.

While the company has not yet provided details on whether any information was taken, it is advising customers who have stayed at any Hyatt location to review their credit card accounts.

In its statement, the company assured customers it “has taken steps to strengthen the security of its systems, and customers can feel confident using payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide.”

As soon as the activity was discovered, Hyatt began an investigation and hired third-party cyber security experts.  The investigation is still ongoing, but Hyatt will continue to post updates on its website.

Hyatt operates 627 properties in 52 countries.
