It has been reported that Chili’s Restaurants has suffered a data breach, with payment card details harvested, according to Brinker International, the company behind the restaurant chain. Ryan Wilk, Vice President at NuData Security commented below.

Ryan Wilk, Vice President at NuData Security:

“Brinker proves to be taking their customer’s online security seriously by reporting the breach incident on the very same day it was discovered so that customers can take action and secure their information right away – by monitoring their credit or freezing it if required.

“Stolen data, whether it is from this breach or the myriad of breaches in the last years, puts companies and their customers at risk. Companies are starting to implement multi-layered solutions to verify their users based on other parameters in addition to usernames, credit card numbers or passwords. Technology such as passive biometrics and behavioural analytics is able to verify a user based on how they behave online, so that even if the right credentials or payment details are presented a fraudulent transaction can be blocked before it goes through.”
