Panasonic Data Breach:
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Panasonic data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Panasonic Avionics Corporation, which provides in-flight entertainment and communication systems, is informing individuals about a cybersecurity incident. The event involved an unauthorized actor accessing a portion of systems in the company's corporate network that contained information collected from individuals, their employers, and others in the course of business operations.
After an investigation, it was determined that specific personal information, including name, contact details, date of birth, medical and health insurance information, financial account numbers, employment status, and government identifiers such as Social Security numbers, was exposed in the breach, which occurred more than a year ago.
A Panasonic spokesperson told BleepingComputer.com that the exposed information was "restricted to a limited amount of employee and business customer data."
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Panasonic to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
