Last year, National Amusements, the parent company of Paramount Global and CBS, experienced a data breach in which the personal information of over 80,000 people was stolen. The breach occurred between December 13 and 15, 2022, but the company did not discover it until August 2023. The stolen information includes banking and credit card information, security codes, passwords, and personal identification numbers. National Amusements has stated that there is no evidence of identity theft or fraud resulting from the breach, but the company has notified the affected individuals and offered free credit monitoring services.

The breach was reported in a filing with the Maine attorney general, and it is unclear how many individuals were impacted by the hack. There is speculation that the breach may have involved the company’s employees, as the filing was submitted by the senior vice president of human resources rather than a corporate attorney. National Amusements also reported a similar data breach in August 2023, but details about that incident are unknown.

The disclosure of the breach comes as National Amusements is reportedly considering selling all or part of Paramount Global. The company is currently owned by Shari Redstone through National Amusements, which is a private company.
