Trump Hotels Discloses Data Breach at 14 Properties

If you stayed at a Trump property between Aug. 10, 2016 and March 9, 2017, then your credit card information could have been compromised. Trump International Hotels Management said a data breach at a service provider led to card payment details, including cardholder names, payment card numbers, expiration dates and security codes, being disclosed. Fourteen properties were affected.

This breach is part of the Sabre Hospitality Solutions breach discovered in May. Sabre’s reservation systems are used by nearly 32,000 properties worldwide, according to this CNBC story.

According to a statement from Trump Hotels, they were notified in June:

“Following an investigation, Sabre notified us on June 5, 2017 that an unauthorized party gained access to account credentials that permitted access to payment card data and certain reservation information for some of our hotel reservations processed through Sabre’s CRS.”

Here are the affected properties:

Trump Central Park: 11/18/2016-11/20/2016

The statement from Trump International Hotels Management goes on to make recommendations to people affected, including to “remain vigilant for incidents of fraud and identity theft by regularly reviewing account statements and monitoring free credit reports for any unauthorized activity. If there is any suspicious or unusual activity, affected individuals should report it immediately to their financial institutions, as the major credit card companies have rules that restrict them from requiring payment for fraudulent charges that are reported timely.”

This was the third breach involving the Trump hotel chain since May 2015, according to the CNBC story. The company “agreed to pay $50,000 last year in a settlement over data breaches that exposed 70,000 credit card numbers and other personal information.”
