Marriott loses data on 200,000 customers

From TechRepublic:

Hotel chain Marriott admitted last Tuesday that backup computer tapes containing data on approximately 206,000 customers were missing from a company office in Florida.

The data, which relates to customers of its time-share division, Marriott Vacation Club International, included personal information such as the credit card details, Social Security numbers and, in a few cases, the bank details of customers.

The company said it has contacted the affected customers and is offering to enroll them free-of-charge in a credit-monitoring service so that customers can discover if there is any irregular activity on their account.
