WRU statement

The Welsh Rugby Union can confirm an investigation is underway into a suspected cyber security breach concerning some official supporters club members data held by an engaged third party.

Share this page:

The WRU takes the privacy and security of its supporters club members personal data extremely seriously and is carrying out a robust and full investigation into these reports, including complying with relevant reporting requirements to the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).

We believe they relate to one of our service provider’s systems and we are working closely with the provider, which is also implementing its own in-depth inquiry.

All of this data has since been removed from the online source and it has already been established that no password or payment information has been compromised.

No other vulnerabilities or suspicious activities have been found in WRU systems after a thorough review of all systems and processes.

We can also reassure all supporters club members and other customers that we remain extra vigilant in this space and continue to engage with our respected cyber security partners on best practice across the business.

Further updates will be issued as soon as available.
