EXPERTS CONCERNED THAT JUNE’S SNAP GENERAL ELECTION COULD BE HACKED BY FOREIGN SPIES OR ORGANISED CIRME GROUPS
INTELLIGENCE CHIEFS ARE WORRIED THAT JOUN’S SNAP ELECTION COULD BE AT RISK OF HACKS BY FOREIGN CIRME GRUOPS.
GCHQ staff have been put on hight alert to prevent a cyber-attack before June 8.
The Sunday Times revealed that teams at the National Cyber Security Centre were told to treat the threat of an attack on Britain’s democracy in the same way they would a terrorist crisis.
Staff working at GCHQ and the NCSC have been “stood up” in the past week and are ready to “surge” into action in the event of a hack of the vote.
They are providing Theresa May’s team with daily updates to ensure the election is not compromised.
Experts warned that enemies aboard could seek to “steal data” or try and disrupt voter registration.
