More than three years after a data breach, a settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving Inter-Continental Hotels Corporation and InterContinental Hotels Group Resources, Inc.
The malware intrusions affected certain IHG hotel, restaurant and bar locations between August 1, 2016 through December 29, 2016. The affected hotel brands include InterContinential, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Candlewood Suites, Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, and Hotel Indigo.
The settlement provides for payments to people who submit valid claims for documented out-of-pocket expenses of up to $250 that either of the Data Security Incidents was a contributing factor to the expense being incurred, and for reimbursement of documented fraudulent and unauthorized losses of up to $3,500 that were more likely than not caused by the Data Security Incidents. The total payments to the class are capped at $1,550,000. For more information, visit IHG Data Security Settlement.
