The charges against the Trump Hotel Collection outline that it didn’t provide adequate protection. En outre, they didn’t inform the people affected, which is in direct breach of New York law.

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has said in a statement that:

It is vital in this digital age that companies take all precautions to ensure that consumer information is protected, and that if a data breach occurs, it is reported promptly to our office, in accordance with state law.

How the Hacks Were Discovered

Une 2015 analysis on fraudulent credit card transactions carried out by several banks revealed that THC was the last merchant where a legitimate transaction had been made using the cards. This is how it was suggested that THC had been targeted in a cyberattack that ended with a data breach.

News of the breach was initially reported by infosec writer Brian Krebs, who cited three unnamed sources in the financial sector.

Krebs wrote that the cards were used at several Trump Hotel buildings such as Trump International Hotel New York, Trump Hotel Waikiki in Honolulu and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto.
