Yet another prominent resort chain has formally reported a cyberattack on their systems. 

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission was made aware Thursday that Caesars Entertainment, a company that owns over 50 hotels and casinos in the U.S. and abroad, has lost a significant amount of sensitive customer data as a result of the breach. 

Caesars Entertainment recently identified “suspicious activity” coming from their IT network. The social engineering attack occurred on an outsourced IT vendor used by the hotel giant, according to the Form 8-K filed. 

An internal investigation by the company determined that on Sept. 7, the Caesars Entertainment loyalty program database where the company stores members’ personal information like social security numbers and driver’s license numbers, was compromised.
