Carnival Corp. announced on Thursday that a data breach in March may have exposed the personal information of Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, and Princess Cruises customers and staff.
The firm will not specify how many people’s personal information had been compromised.
Carnival was targeted twice by ransomware assaults last year, resulting in the breach.
On March 19, Carnival spokesman Roger Frizzell said the business discovered the latest hack into some of its information technology systems and locked off access while hiring a cybersecurity firm to investigate. Carnival is implementing measures to strengthen the security of its information systems, according to him.
According to Frizzell, the firm has contacted those who are affected and established a call center to answer their queries.
The attackers got access to personal information about customers and workers by encrypting a portion of one cruise line’s IT infrastructure. There was no indication that personal information revealed in the assaults was abused, according to Carnival. The corporation made no mention of paying a ransom.
