- Flight Center has confirmed that a significant data breach that occurred in 2017 was the result of sensitive information being left in a database given to hackathon participants. The compromised data included credit card numbers and passport details.
- Flight Center informed the relevant customers that their personal information had been compromised and conducted a post-incident review to assess the long-term business impact and follow-up risks.
- Unsurprisingly, the hackathon remains the only one the company has run to date.
