Trump Hotel chain suffers data breach again

There’s no doubt that if your organisation practices poor information security, then you’re going to pay for it.

The Trump Hotel chain has again failed to be great, and has reportedly suffered another data breach. Brian Krebs, the man who uncovers a significant number of large scale data breaches, announced that sources close to him have uncovered a “pattern of fraud”.

In a written statement, a Trump Hotel Collection representative said: “We are in the midst of a thorough investigation on this matter. We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly.”

Less than a year ago, Krebs uncovered another data breach at the hotel chain, which was then confirmed by the organisation in October 2015.

“Obsolete in cyber”

Donald Trump recently spoke about his thoughts on cyber security and what his plans are if he becomes US President. Trump said “We’re so obsolete in cyber, we’re the ones that sort of were very much involved with the creation, but we’re so obsolete.”
