Title:  Mountain Training UK Security Breach
Date:  24/11/2016

Some of our award candidates will have received an email from Mountain Training UK (MTUK) yesterday (November 23rd) containing notification of a recent security breach to their system. This email was genuine and affects those who have registered or completed training or assessment on those awards we share with MTUK, since 2014 (namely the Lowland Leader Award, Hill & Moorland Leader Award, Mountain Leader Award, Single Pitch Award, Climbing Wall Award and Climbing Wall Leading Award). MTUK and their database developer TahDah reacted quickly to the breach and there is no evidence of downloaded data being shared. If you have any queries regarding this please contact Mountaineering Ireland.
