We are writing to inform you that a data security problem incident has happened at Jobandtalent.
Our engineering team discovered on July 5, 2018 that an unknown entity accessed our server and may have had access to some limited information about your user (namely email address, first name, last name, and an encrypted version of your password).
Our platform engineers immediately managed to close the source of the threat. They are closely monitoring our platform, and we've found no evidence of any recurrence of the incident, nor that any sensible information has been compromised.
Thanks to the great work of our security team, there is only little chance that your data has been compromised. However, for extra security we have already reset your password randomly.
Please change it to the password of your choice by logging-out the Jobandtalent app, or via our web. In addition if you were using a similar password on other platforms, we advise you to change it there too.
Tips for a strong password:
Use a password longer than 8 characters
Use special characters and numbers such as '! = - 4 5 8'
Do not use the same password between different platforms
Ensuring our users data's safety is our top priority, and we apologize for this incident. On Thursday we already added new layers of security to our platform and we are continuously improving our system.

Which data was compromised?
The email address, full name, IP and encrypted password of some users may have been compromised. The intruder did not gain access any other type of information.
How does this impact me?
Someone may have gained access to your email address, full name and an encrypted version of your password which would be very hard to decrypt.
It would be safer to change your password in any other platform where you were using the same password as Jobandtalent.
Have you corrected the problem?
We immediately closed the source of the threat. Our engineers are closely monitoring our platform, and we've found no evidence of any recurrence of the incident, nor that any sensible information has been compromised.
Could this happen again?
