The largest US independent supplier of Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs) is in the process of notifying individuals affected by a data breach.
On June 28, 2019, Solara confirmed that an unknown actor had gained access to a number of its employees’ Office 365 accounts without authorisation, between April 2, 2019 and June 20, 2019, following a series of phishing attacks.
The supplier launched an investigation into the incident with the help of third-party forensic experts to identify what information resided within the accounts at the time of the breach.
The investigation revealed that the incident may have exposed some employees’ personal information including their name, address, Social Security Number, medical data, Medicare ID, payment card credentials and health insurance details.
In a statement, Solara said: “Solara moved quickly to investigate and respond to this incident, assess the security of relevant Solara systems, and notify potentially affected individuals. This response included resetting relevant account passwords and reviewing and enhancing existing Solara policies and procedures to reduce the likelihood of a similar future event.”
Solara has revealed that it is offering complimentary access to credit monitoring and identity protection services at no extra cost to those that might have been impacted.
Additionally, individuals are urged to monitor their account statements and credit reports for any suspicious activity.
