Grand Ole Opry Parent Company Falls Victim to Phishing Scam

Today’s reminder that we’re not done with all the phishing that snagged employee W-2 data.

Nashville’s Ryman Hospitality Properties has fallen victim to a fraudulent phishing scam that resulted in employees’ IRS W-2 information, which includes Social Security numbers, being disclosed externally, Billboard has learned.

The company is parent to entertainment brands the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and legendary country radio station WSM-AM. Its managed assets also include Nashville nightclub the Wildhorse Saloon, four large resort hotels, two smaller hotels, a golf course, and Nashville’s General Jackson Showboat.

Ryman Hospitality executives first learned of the data breach on the afternoon of March 23.
