Marriott Faces $124 Million GDPR Fine in UK

The proposed penalty is for a data breach beginning in 2014 that affected more than 500 million customers worldwide.

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) of the UK said it intends to fine Marriott International £99,200,396, or approximately US$124,000,495, for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) violations.

The proposed fine, in response to the massive Starwood Hotels data breach that affected more than 500 million guests around the world, comes on the heels of a record £183 million (US$229 million) fine levied against British Airways for a breach of payment information of more than a half-million customers.

According to the ICO, Marriott has cooperated with the investigation and will now have a chance to present information to the Office regarding the potential fine. After hearing from Marriott and other interested parties, the ICO will decide on the final amount of the fine.

On hotels
I book directly by phone to the hotel itself, having been taken advantage of by Trivago some years ago ..... so what about those third party firms too???  HOW secure are they when you dump credit card data down over the net?  We don't hear much about that ever.  View with the same suspect as third party billing firms just went to hell in the Labcorp mess.
