- Trump hotel chain fined over data breaches. From ComputerWorld.
Trump Hotel Collection has arrived at a settlement with New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman over hacks that are said to have led to the exposure of over 70,000 credit card numbers and other personal data.
The hotel chain, one of the businesses of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has agreed to pay $50,000 in penalties and promised to take measures to beef up its data security practices, according to the attorney general’s office.
The chain is one of many hotels and retailers that have been hit recently by malware that skimmed payment card information.
