Swiss Review - Theft of mailing address data

The Swiss printing company Vogt-Schild, which prints and sends out Swiss Review, the magazine for the Swiss abroad, has been the victim of a cyber-attack. 

As part of the attack, an unknown number of mailing addresses for the March 2023 issue of Swiss Review were stolen. Depending on how the Swiss Review is sent, the stolen data includes either the e-mail addresses or the surnames, first names and postal addresses of the recipients. Vogt-Schild does not hold any other personal information relating to the mailing of Swiss Review. Vogt-Schild has taken additional measures to strengthen the security of its IT infrastructure and has lodged a criminal complaint. In the meantime, the federal authorities responsible for data protection and combating cybercrime have been informed.

As a reminder, everyone is advised to change their passwords regularly and, ideally, to use two-factor authentication. 

For all questions relating to cyber security, important additional information can be found on the website of the National Cyber Security Centre NCSC.
