Eye Care Firm’s Data Breach

Nearly 400,000 individuals had sensitive information stolen during a 2023 cyberattack on Panorama Eyecare, a company supporting eye clinics. The breach exposed names, Social Security numbers, financial details, and medical data. The incident highlights the risks associated with third-party service providers in healthcare.

Panorama Eyecare said it first discovered the attack on June 3, 2023 and an investigation revealed the hackers had access to the company’s network as far back as May 22, 2023. The investigation into the incident concluded nearly a year later, revealed the hackers “may have accessed and removed certain files” from their network.
