A dozen Cabinet ministers have been caught out ignoring David Cameron’s ban on taking mobile phones into meetings.
Blackberries, iPhones and other handsets were banned from Cabinet meetings in 2010 over fears they could be hijacked by foreign spies to listen in on top level discussions.
But when security chiefs went to brief ministers on efforts to tackle cyber-terrorism, the Prime Minister was alarmed to find at least 12 had broken the rules.
The £860 million five-year Cyber Security Strategy – which was published in 2011 – sets out measures to safeguard Britain’s economic prosperity, national security and way of life by building a ‘more trusted and resilient digital environment’.
It aims to make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business online, by tackling cyber crime, promoting resilience to cyber-attack and helping to shape an ‘open, vibrant and stable’ cyberspace.
Downing Street refused to discuss the content of Mr Hannigan’s briefing.
yeah we are safe in there hands……..not !!!
