ICO continues power trip with £99m GDPR fine for Marriott International

Fresh from throwing a record-breaking £183m fine in the direction of British Airways, the ICO on Tuesday announced that it's continuing its power trip and slapping Marriott International with a hefty fine of £99,200,396, to be precise.

 

The penalty relates to the mega-breach the hotel chain fessed up to in November last year. While, at the time, Marriott said the breach affected 500 million customers, the ICO's probing has revealed that a total of 339 million guest records globally were exposed, of which seven million related to British visitors.

 

According to a post mortem of the hack, hackers stole:

  • 383 million guest records
  • 18.5 million encrypted passport numbers
  • 5.25 million unencrypted passport numbers
  • 9.1 million encrypted payment card numbers
  • 385,000 card numbers that were still valid at the time of the breach
