Additional Details Forthcoming as Investigation Continues
With the help of leading cyber security firms, law enforcement, and their payment processor, Chipotle Mexican Grill is investigating a data security incident that reportedly occurred from March 24, 2017 through April 18, 2017. According to a notice issued by Chipotle, the company believes that their actions have stopped the unauthorized activity and is now implementing additional security enhancements. The investigation is still ongoing, and Chipotle did not provide additional details, including specific timeframes and restaurant locations that may have been affected.
Chipotle is encouraging consumers to closely monitor their credit and debit card statements for any unauthorized charges. If an unauthorized charge has been made, affected consumers are then encouraged to immediately notify the bank that issued their card. CBS News has reported that a representative from the company said that they have notified card networks, which will notify issuing banks, which will then notify affected customers.
