If you need legal advice about the Marriott data breach, we can help. This is another huge breach that has led to private and sensitive data being exposed.

This has to be 2018’s mega breach. Although we thought the British Airways one was the breach to set the bar, this one is obscene in terms of data breached and the timeframe. Some 500 million customers whose data was on Marriott’s Starwood reservation database has been comprised since 2014. Anyone with data on the system up until 10th September 2018 may be affected.

If you’ve received notification that you’re a victim of the data breach and you’re based in England or Wales, we can help.

About the Marriott data breach

News of the Marriott data breach hit the headlines in the last couple of weeks.

The numbers of affected customers is around 500 million.

An unauthorised third-party has reportedly had to access the guest reservation database for Marriott’s Starwood division. Marriott acquired the Starwood chain of hotels (which include Sheraton, Four Points, W Hotels and Le Méridien) in 2016.

The unauthorised third-party appears to have had access since 2014. A breach period spanning a four-year period is incredibly concerning.

Information exposed in the Marriott data breach

The information that has been exposed in the data breach includes:

  • Names;
  • Addresses;
  • Telephone numbers;
  • Email addresses;
  • Birth dates;
  • Genders;
  • Account information;
  • Passport numbers;
  • Arrival and departure information.

This is all incredibly personal and sensitive data. It’s more than enough for scammers and fraudsters to commit financial crimes against the victims.

It’s also more than enough for scammers to pose as Marriott and contact victims to take advantage of them.

What’s being done about the Marriott data breach?

So far, off the back of the Marriott data breach, the company has reportedly said they will pay for replacement passports for victims. Ultimately, there’s nothing that can be truly done to stop people falling victim to crimes.

The damage has been done by the fact that the data has been exposed in the first place.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) have said:

“We have received a data breach report from Marriott involving its Starwood Hotels and will be making enquiries. If anyone has concerns about how their data has been handled they can report these concerns to us.”
