Chipotle Mexican Grill

Chipotle Mexican Grill was one of the high-profile victims of the cybercriminal group known as FIN7, which orchestrated a sophisticated cyber attack campaign targeting companies across the United States and in parts of the United Kingdom, Australia, and France. The attack on Chipotle and other entities involved breaching the computer networks to steal more than 15 million customer card records from over 6,500 point-of-sale terminals at more than 3,600 business locations. This massive data breach led to considerable financial loss and damage to the company's reputation as customer trust was compromised due to the exposure of sensitive financial information. The incidents underline the growing threat posed by cybercriminals and the critical importance of robust cybersecurity measures to protect consumer data.
