Paul Brinkmann reports:

An insurance company for Rosen Hotels & Resorts has filed a lawsuit claiming Rosen is not covered for more than $2.4 million in damages related to a data breach announced last year.

And the costs could be more than that, if Rosen faces legal claims from customers, according to the lawsuit.

[…]

Rosen allegedly was slapped with $1 million fines from Visa and Mastercard each; $128,830 fine from American Express; $50,000 in attorneys’ fees; $15,000 in fees to a crisis-management firm; $40,000 in costs to send notifications to clients; and a bill for $150,000 to a data forensics team that identified the breach.
