A data breach that hit more than a thousand hotels across the United States in the final quarter of 2016 counts 19 New Jersey locations among its targets.

The hotels are all operated by International Hotels Group, which has activated a look-up tool on its website for customers, who believe their credit card statements were affected, to get more information.

Cash registers may have been hacked during this breach meaning names, card numbers, expiration dates and verification codes were put at risk.

Forbes suggests encrypted databases, multi-level passwords, employee background checks, firewalls and malware detection, and hold harmless protections via your attorney as ways to prevent becoming susceptible to future breaches.

The full list of potentially compromised N.J. hotels, beginning on Sept. 29 of last year:

  • Candlewood Suites in Bordentown, through Oct. 11
  • Holiday Inn in Budd Lake, through Dec. 28
  • Holiday Inn Express in Carneys Point, through Oct. 3
  • Holiday Inn in Clinton, through Dec. 20
  • Staybridge Suites in Cranbury, through Dec. 29
