Trump Hotel Collection Confirms Security Breach

Hotel security

The Trump Hotel Collection has confirmed that its point-of-sale systems were infected by malware for more than a year. This news comes nearly three months after Eric Trump, executive vice president of development and acquisitions, said the company was investigating reports of suspicious credit card activity.

A legal notice posted on the company’s website explains that seven properties were impacted: Trump SoHo New York, Trump National Doral, Trump International New York, Trump International Chicago, Trump International Waikiki, Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas, and Trump International Toronto. The statement says a forensic investigator did not find evidence that information was taken from the hotels’ systems, but there may have been malware access to card information as it was placed in the payment systems.

Other hotels that were hacked this year include Mandarin Oriental, White Lodging, and, most recently, Hilton.
