Title: Big GDPR breach at Marriott group!

You'll have to click the link (https://www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/marriott-potentially-exposed-first-big-gdpr-fine-starwood-data-breach/1520070) to learn more. Basically, The Starwood Hotels and Resorts data breach, in which 500 million hotel guests’ data was exposed, could lead to brand owner Marriott to the world’s first significant fine under GDPR. The news article labels it as a 'potentially' -well we all know what that means.

I'm concerned because I've stayed at the Marriott on several occasions over the last few years. Maybe I could get a few quid! LOL.

I know of two people who have had data breaches caused by NHS Informatics. But who cares about that - cuz basically they're 'thuh govt'.
