Marriott International Chief Financial Officer Leeny Oberg spoke at an investor conference where she told attendees it was too early to determine the costs related to the hotel chain’s data breach, Bloomberg reports.

Reuters reports the hackers behind the breach may work for a Chinese government intelligence operation, and The Hill reports the incident has launched a new wave of calls for a federal U.S. privacy law.
