The breach of Marina Bay Sands.

SINGAPORE, Nov 7, (Agencies): On Tuesday, a Singapore-based luxury resort operator disclosed a significant data breach that impacted around 665,000 members of its shopping loyalty program. This breach at Marina Bay Sands is the latest in a series of notable cybersecurity incidents that have recently plagued the city-state.

Marina Bay Sands, which is under the ownership of the prominent US casino corporation Las Vegas Sands, reported the “data security incident” on Oct 20. The resort operator communicated this information to some of its customers via email.

According to the Chief Operating Officer, Paul Town, investigations have concluded that an unknown third party gained unauthorized access to customer data from nearly 665,000 non-casino rewards program members. This security breach occurred on Oct 19 and 20 and involved the exposure of sensitive information, including names, email addresses, phone numbers, countries of residence, and membership numbers of shoppers.

Despite this breach, Town assured customers that, as per their investigation, there is no evidence to date suggesting that the unauthorized third party has misused the accessed data to harm customers. Notably, it appears that the membership data for the casino rewards program remains unaffected by the incident.

Marina Bay Sands has proactively engaged a cybersecurity firm to reinforce and enhance its security systems, as confirmed by Paul Town.
