Chili's Grill & Bar on Sunday said customers' payment information was compromized in a data breach. 

"On May 11 we learned that some of our Guests’ payment card information from certain restaurants was compromised," the company tweeted along with a link to a statement providing additional information. 

Brinker International, which owns Chili's, said it was working with third-party forensic experts to "conduct an extensive investigation to confirm the nature and scope of this incident."

"We sincerely apologize to those who may have been affected and assure you we are working diligently to resolve this incident,” Brinker added.

Hacking activity reached a record high in 2017 with over 1,500 data breaches, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center, with Facebook and Equifax under fire for leaks of millions of customers’ personal information.
