UK Plans to Fine Marriott $123 Million for Breach of Starwood Guest Database

The UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) intends to impose a fine of $123,705,870 on international hotel chain Marriott for last year's data breach. In November 2018, Marriott disclosed that hackers accessed the Starwood guest reservation database since 2014. Initially, the company said hackers stole the details of roughly 500 million hotel guests, a number which the hotel chain later corrected to 383 million following a more thorough investigation.
