As per the ET report, thousand of consumers have asked for transparency and accountability from Domino’s Pizza following the massive data breach. Jubilant FoodWorks, Domino’s owner did admit to the data breach. The company, however, said that despite the leak, customers’ financial information is safe.
“Jubilant FoodWorks experienced an information security incident recently. No data pertaining to the financial information of any person was accessed and the incident has not resulted in any operational or business impact. As a policy we do not store financial details or credit card data of our customers, thus no such information has been compromised. Our team of experts is investigating the matter and we have taken necessary actions to contain the incident,” the company said in a statement.
But even if the information is said to be safe, it is advised not to save card details online so as to avoid such breach. The cybersecurity specialists cited that the latest data leak is the outcome of a breach that occurred in the servers of the pizza chain this April and is likely done by the same hacker.
