Data breaches don’t show any sign of slowing this year with two more companies reporting data theft on the heels of the Chick-fil-A report that credit and debit card data may have been compromised at some of their locations.

Park ‘N Fly, an airport parking service, has confirmed a data compromise. There have also been reports of a possible breach at OneStopParking, a similar airport service.

Chick-fil-A  data breach

Earlier this year, Chick-fil-A reported that some unusual activity had occurred on payment cards at some stores. They have been working with an IT security firm and law enforcement to determine if a breach occurred and who and what were affected.

The restaurant chain continues its investigation and has indicated that if there was a data breach, customers will not be liable for fraudulent charges to their account and they will be provided with free identity protection services including credit monitoring.

In the meantime, they suggest that customers review their monthly payment card statements and report any issues as soon as possible.

Customers Park ‘N Fly passwords, telephone numbers, and email addresses also may have been also been hacked.

Park ‘N Fly has set up a toll-free call center where concerned customers can get additional information, as well as offering to provide them with free identity monitoring and identity protection services for one year.
