Was talking to a friend whose company had a data breach last year. He says his PR dept. waited until a Friday to make a press release, as did Marriott (at least I think, it's behind a paywall so I didn't read it). He says it's becoming more common to do so, less people paying attention.

It's not a paywall, you need to click 'just browse' most left option and then accept cookies.

But yes, these kind of things are still 'swept' under the rug. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't have a contingency plan and/or inform the clients for the potential problems.
