We are writing to you regarding a data security incident involving the unauthorized access by a third party to personal data of some of our Sands LifeStyle rewards programme members that transpired on 19 and 20 October 2023 and that we first became aware of on 20 October 2023. We understand that you may be concerned about this incident, and wish to advise that based on our current investigation findings, your personal data was not affected.
Upon discovery of the incident, our teams immediately took action to resolve it. Investigations have since determined that an unknown third party accessed customer data of about 665,000 non-casino rewards programme members.
Based on our investigation, we do not have evidence to date that the unauthorized third party has misused the data to cause harm to customers.
We do not believe that membership data from our casino rewards programme, Sands Rewards Club, was affected.
After learning of the issue, we quickly launched an investigation, have been working with a leading external cybersecurity firm, and have taken action to further strengthen our systems and protect data.
Although your personal data was not affected, it is best practice to monitor your account for suspicious activity and change your log-in pin regularly, and to be extra vigilant against phishing attempts, particularly against clicking on links that may direct you to malicious websites where your password or other personal information may be requested.
We have reported this incident to the relevant authorities in Singapore and other countries where applicable and are working with them in their inquiries into the issue.
