Information about security breach

Posted on IACA website

Dear members, dear sailors,

In 2016, we have conducted a world-wide poll using the provider. We just received a message that Typeform had a data breach, which affected the poll we sent out. Typeform reports that an external attacker managed to get unauthorized access to respondent data and downloaded it.

Beside your answers to the poll, the respondent data contained your name, country and email. These informations could mis-used to contact you. We recommend that you watch out for potential phishing scams, or spam emails. Because we didn’t collect any other personal details, I don’t think the risk is high enough to bother, but I found appropriate to inform you about this case.

Even if I’m not directly responsible for this issue, I apologize for the inconvenience it may cause. If you have any more question, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Charles Bueche
