IAA apologises for data breach

The Irish Aviation Authority has apologised after a data breach on its drone register.

Registered owners were allowed to access the names and contact details of all other drone pilots as a result of an error.

The Authority has said no financial or personal information was available and the system was fixed within two hours.

They are calling on drone owners who unintentionally accessed the information, to destroy any material they may have downloaded.
