Cybersecurity experts say Marriott International (NYSE:MAR) missed a chance to stop the data breach at Starwood as early as 2015.

A thorough investigation of a smaller breach at that time could have lead the company to uncover the vulnerabiltiies that eventually led to the theft of the personal data of up to 500M Marriott customers, the cybersecurity specialists tell The Wall Street Journal.

Shares of Marriott are up 1.29% in premarket trading to cut into Friday's 5.59% decline.
