‘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 cyber crime have been informed.


As a reminder, it is a good idea to change passwords regularly and, where possible, use two-factor authentication.
