Family Vision of Anderson Data Breach
About the Investigation:
If so, your sensitive personal identifiable information may have been stolen!
Family Vision of Anderson is an optometry practice with three locations in South Carolina. In May 2023 they discovered the presence of ransomware on one of their office computers. As a result, an unauthorized third party accessed confidential information stored on their server which belonged to patients. Because of this breach, the private data of around 60,000 Family Vision patients is now in the hands of hackers, including names, dates of birth, home addresses, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, phone numbers, email addresses, private health information and health insurance information.
Data breaches are serious matters that can cause long term damage. Hackers break into networks so that they can steal your personal information to sell it on the dark web, commit identity theft, financial theft or other frauds.
How do you know if you were affected? If you received a letter from Family Vision of Anderson notifying you that your personal information was impacted in their data breach, contact us to find out if you may be eligible for compensation!
