Re: Adidas has no reason to believe that any credit card or fitness information of those consumers was impacted
@Ryan: Not every breach has to involve payment information.


Even without the encrypted passwords, we are absolutely talking about PII: usernames + contact information. And very little contact info indeed is needed to perpetuate notable harm.

When this is the case I believe the event to be an incident but not a breach. Release an email to the affected that you will be forcing a password change. Unless you can confirm that sensitive data sets were acquired I don't think there is any reason to declare a breach and it is more difficult to back track than it is to escalate severity once more data is found.

More to come....hopefully
When these go public there is many times a lack of detail until the Incident Report is released. These are the logistics I typically concern myself with.
