Hyatt Hotels Latest Chain Hit by Hackers

Last week, Hyatt Hotels joined the pack of hotel companies that have been hacked this year, reports CNN. Hyatt suffered a data breach at its 318 managed properties that potentially exposed customer debit and credit card information. The company said that the breach did not expose data at Hyatt franchise properties. In 2015, hacks of this sort have exploded. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, more than 750 breaches were reported through late December, exposing nearly 178 million records and leaving no sector untouched. Trump Hotels, Hilton Hotels, and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide were also victimized by malware attacks targeting point-of-sale systems.
