    Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson testified in front of a US Senate subcommittee yesterday, revealing new details about a security breach the hotel chain disclosed last year.
    Speaking in front of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Sorenson apologized to the company's customers but also shot down rumors that China was behind the hack.

    According to a prepared statement for his testimony, Sorenson said that the first time when Marriott learned that something might be wrong was on September 8, last year, when they were contacted by Accenture, the IT company that was managing the Starwood guest reservation database.
