Radisson joins British Airways and Cathay Pacific that have recently contacted some of the customers that their information has been stolen.
Radisson Rewards has emailed affected members today informing that a “small percentage” of accounts had been impacted by a “data security incident” aka breach/hack. Member name, address, email address, phone number, Radisson Rewards number and any frequent flier number on file were stolen.
You can access Radisson Rewards web page for this incident here.
Radisson Rewards has not issued a press release about this hack. Company promises to contact affected members on October 30 and 31.
Not fan how insecurely these companies handle the data of their customers and loyalty program members. It is almost like they leave their front doors open to anyone download the data.
As I have said it before, nothing will happen until there is high enough penalties set by the governments so that they invest enough into IT security.
