InterContinental Hotels Group cyberattack disrupts booking systems

Leading hospitality company InterContinental Hotels Group PLC says its information technology systems have been disrupted since yesterday after its network was breached.

IHG is a British multinational company that currently operates 6,028 hotels in more than 100 countries and has more than 1,800 in the development pipeline.

“InterContinental Hotels Group PLC reports that parts of the Company’s technology systems have been subject to unauthorised activity,” the company said in a filing with the London Stock Exchange on Tuesday.

The global hotel group has hired the services of external experts to investigate the incident and is also notifying relevant regulatory authorities.

“IHG is working to fully restore all systems as soon as possible and to assess the nature, extent and impact of the incident,” IHG added.

“We will be supporting hotel owners and operators as part of our response to the ongoing service disruption. IHG’s hotels are still able to operate and to take reservations directly.”
