A trade publication FINEXTRA reports that Radisson Hotels & Resorts has revealed that the credit card details of some its customers were compromised in a data breach that took place at several of its hotels in the U.S. and Canada between November 2008 and May.
The company said that the names of an unknown number of its customers, as well as their credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates, were exposed when someone illegally accessed its computer systems. However, no Social Security numbers were stolen in the incident.
Radisson says it is working with law enforcement and forensic investigators to look into the breach, which was discovered by Visa, MasterCard, and several payment processors. Radisson has also launched a review of the affected computer systems and has implemented several security measures to ensure that a similar breach does not take place again.
