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.

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.
