A data breach that exposed millions (and possibly billions) of customer information has led to the resignation of the chairman of the American Hotel & Lodging Association.
Hoover Dam Lodge has said the incident was “incredibly disruptive” to its membership.
The hotel, which was founded in the United States in 1890, has been in the news this week because of revelations that the company has been using credit card information for many years to pay for goods and services.
Its website says it has a reputation for providing top-quality service.
A spokesman said the company was working to resolve the breach.
“We have not been able to locate any customer data, and we have not received any customer complaints,” the spokesman said.
In a statement, H&L Lodge said it was aware of the incident and “will be taking appropriate action”.
“The H&l Lodge corporate office is aware of this issue and we are working to determine the details of this matter,” the statement read.
According to the Washington Post, Hoover has been hit with a class-action lawsuit in the US for breach of contract and fraud over the breach of its credit card data.
Some of the information exposed in the breach was shared by members of the hotel’s board of directors.
One of the people who shared information included the head of H&O’s customer service, who said that the data was shared with H&H, which has not responded to requests for comment.
The Washington Post says that H&D said in a statement that the breach would not have happened if it had been disclosed to the public in a timely manner.
“We are notifying customers of the issue, and working with them to review the information that has been compromised,” the H&d said.
“We are aware of no breach at H&C and are actively working to address this issue.”
H&L also said that it had suspended all hotel transactions until further notice.
However, the Post says some of the data included in the data breach was not shared publicly.
