What happened? Sources reveal that several banks have traced a pattern of fraudulent debit and credit card charges to accounts that had all been used at Trump hotels.

What they’re saying: “Like virtually every other company these days, we have been alerted to potential suspicious credit card activity and are in the midst of a thorough investigation to determine whether it involves any of our properties. We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly,” Eric Trump, EVP of Development and Acquisitions said in a statement.

If confirmed, the incident would be the latest in a long string of breaches involving the hospitality industry, which include Mandarin Oriental and White Lodging this past spring. With the number of hacks on the rise and no apparent end in sight, how can you ensure that your network and its data are protected?
