P.F. Chang's looking into data breach claim
LONDON (6/13/14)--The popular Chinese food restaurant chain P.F. Chang's China Bistro announced this week it has launched an investigation into claims of a data breach involving debit and credit card information stolen from its restaurant locations in the United States ( Reuters.com June 10).

Card information posted on an underground website was discovered Monday, with the common tie that the cards had all been used at a P.F. Chang's sometime between March and May, according to KrebsOnSecurity.com , a computer security and cybercrime watchdog.

"P.F. Chang's takes these matters very seriously and is currently investigating the situation, working with the authorities to learn more," said Anne Deanovic, a spokeswoman for the restaurant chain ( Reuters.com) .

Owned by the private equity firm Centerbridge Partners, P.F. Chang's operates 211 restaurants throughout the country.

The Credit Union National Association continues to ask lawmakers to develop legislation that would ramp up data security standards for merchants, who aren't obligated to meet the same criteria as credit unions and other financial institutions.
