Trump Hotels reports a data breach affecting 14 properties

Trump International Hotel and Tower, Chicago

Trump International Hotels Management LLC, the chain of hotels formerly led by US President Donald Trump, has reported that a data breach compromised information such as payment card details at 14 locations.

The breach resulted from a service provider called Sabre Corporation, which first reported a cyber attack on its systems back in May as part of its quarterly filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Sabre provides reservation systems for more than 32,000 properties internationally, and a notice issued by Trump Hotels states that an unauthorized party first gained access to reservation information last August, with the latest such access having occurred this March.

The Texas-based company reportedly informed Trump Hotels of the breach - which affected hotels including Trump Las Vegas and Trump Chicago - on June 5. The occurrence is the third of its kind to affect Trump Hotels since 2014, with the company having agreed to pay a $50,000 settlement over data security concerns with the State of New York last September.

This isn't the first time this year that companies have been affected by concerns over the security of data, with Chipotle, the AA, and the social media app Wishbone also having experienced similar situations that compromised personal data.
