Public Service Broadcasting (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (27 May 2021)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Bashir affair has shaken the BBC’s reputation and clearly requires lessons to be learned, but we should also recognise that it pales in comparison with the behaviour of News Corporation in phone hacking and corrupt payments over several years. That has not stopped News Corporation attacking the BBC. I am bored stiff with the stream of negative stories that the Times publishes to...

Cyber-Fraud in the UK (25 May 2021)

Patricia Gibson: ...businesses lost more than £6.2 million to cyber-scams in the previous year, with a 31% increase in cases at the height of the pandemic, last May and June. The most common type of attack has been hacking through email or social media, which accounted for 53% of attacks over the past year, leading to a loss of £2.9 million. Scams caused by hacking of computer services have been revealed as...

Telecommunications (Security) Bill: New Clause 1 - OFCOM’s Annual Report (25 May 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...would all, in effect, be running over one vendor, AWS. That would be a single point of failure were AWS to be bought by a hostile country or, as in the case of SolarWinds, even were it just to be hacked by a hostile operator, yet without this new clause I fail to see how the Bill would ensure we had warning of that. There is no requirement on Ofcom to assess how each network provider, and...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (19 May 2021)

Lord King of Bridgwater: ...people and transformed opportunities to communicate, but with it has come the power of others to control it and use it against them for criminal or subversive ends. The enormous increase in cyber hacking and scams has brought with it the huge new industry of cybersecurity, which struggles to contain it. I was very interested in the comments of Ciaran Martin, the first head of the National...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (13 May 2021)

Lord Howell of Guildford: .... The world is now an increasingly dangerous place for small nations, as many have found out to their cost. Economic infiltration from Russia or China is widespread, and lethal cyber intrusion and hacking can literally switch a nation off. Edinburgh already seems to be toying dangerously with deals with China, so we hear. To counter these powerful and dangerous trends, first, we need to...

Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy - Motion to Take Note (22 Apr 2021)

Lord Wei: ...of resilience and the role we can all play to help mitigate some of the shocks on the horizon. There will continue to be shocks, as the review correctly highlights, whether climate-related, a major hack or a drone attack on a major city or installation, or indeed another pandemic—manmade or zoonotic. Covid-19 has shown that it does not require a nuclear arsenal or an army, cyber or...

Strength of the UK’s Armed Forces (14 Apr 2021)

Chris Clarkson: ...the Berlin wall was standing, the Soviet Union was the biggest geopolitical threat and in 1983 the film “WarGames” depicted the science fiction scenario of an automated weapons system being hacked for a nuclear strike. Today, China joins Russia as a pre-eminent threat, the longest remaining section of the Berlin wall forms part of the East Side Gallery, several members of the former...

Tributes: Baroness Williams of Crosby (14 Apr 2021)

Lord Fowler: ...that she was always fair in her criticism. When she came to this House, as we all remember, she retained that fairness of judgment. I remember with gratitude her support for my campaign on phone hacking, for example. Above all, I will remember her for one thing: in an age when politicians are criticised, rightly or wrongly, for being more interested in what they can get out of politics,...

Global Human Security — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (13 Apr 2021)

Jamie Stone: ...that it would be extremely dangerous for me to turn on my iPhone that close to the Russian border. He said, “Quite simply, they will triangulate in on you right away and in no time at all hack into your iPhone”. We were told in almost blood-curdling terms, “Do not use social media. If you take a picture, don’t send it anywhere at all”. Despite my TA experience a long time ago,...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: National Security: Research (24 Mar 2021)

Jeremy Quin: A Vulnerability Disclosure Policy (VDP) is a 'see something, say something' process to allow security researchers to report a vulnerability in MOD systems (found through e.g. ethical hacking). MOD launched its VDP in December 2020. Practically, 'to act in good faith' means working to find vulnerabilities in IT systems without causing damage to them, disrupting their operation, or exfiltrating...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income tax (charge) (8 Mar 2021)

Alison McGovern: .... The Secretary of State got himself into hot water by asking the fashion roundtable to use its star quality to influence our European partners—whom the Conservative party has so successfully hacked off. Was that an honest acknowledgment that there just is not anyone in his Department who has star quality of their own? Or was it, on this International Women’s Day, an admission that the...

Scottish Parliament: Flood Resilience (Mid Scotland and Fife) (11 Feb 2021)

Finlay Carson: On Christmas eve, the SEPA computer system was hacked. As well as documents being lost, some key areas of operation were severely affected. Although severe warnings that are based on forecasts are still issued, the minister will be aware that often localised extreme weather conditions are difficult to forecast. That means that river level warning systems are critical for the protection of our...

Towns Fund (4 Feb 2021)

Jon Trickett: ..., but we should never turn our backs on those held-back communities in the towns. We clearly need state intervention, but on a massive scale—a new Marshall plan. The towns fund simply does not hack it. Towns have been left behind by gigantic global capital flows driven by a new and even more remote phase of capitalism and by a political elite operating in the interests of capitalism,...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 15 - Designated vendor directions (26 Jan 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...called advanced persistent threats, which is an actor embedding themself into parts of the environment, staying hidden for a while and potentially collecting credentials—think of the SolarWinds hack that is in the news at the moment.”––[Official Report, Telecommunications (Security) Public Bill Committee, 14 January 2021; c. 17, Q16.] Emily Taylor, chief executive of Oxford...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 16 (21 Jan 2021)

Lord Balfe: ...provision. There are technical requirements for certain systems whereby the user cannot modify them—for example, data associated with remote ID. However, this does not protect against deliberate hacking or intentional disabling of systems. A provision that makes these acts illegal is therefore relevant. BALPA has engaged directly with staff at the DfT on this point and we are grateful to...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 4 - Informing others of security compromises (21 Jan 2021)

Kevan Jones: My hon. Friend is correct. A lot of the debate has been about hardware, but the biggest threat to our national security, in terms of telecoms, is from hacking and cyber-attacks. The changing nature of the threat is interesting. There are state actors and there is organised crime, acting on of behalf of states, but there is also, as referred to by my hon. Friend, some poor teenager who thought...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 5 - General duty of OFCOM to ensure compliance with security duties (21 Jan 2021)

Chris Matheson: ...equipment of different ages. My hon. Friend the shadow Minister gave a shocking statistic in relation to the age of the equipment that was responsible for the insecurity that led to the TalkTalk hack. I describe that overlapping network as sounding to non-experts—such as me, I hasten to add—like a bowl of spaghetti. We therefore accept that any assessment is a complicated task, and we...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Computer Software (21 Jan 2021)

Viscount Waverley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the hacking of government department emails in the United States in December 2020; and whether they have identified who was responsible for that hacking.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Nigeria: Genocide (20 Jan 2021)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by Intersociety 2,200 Nigerian Christians hacked to death in 2020 and 34,400 since 2009, published on 16 December 2020; and what action they have taken (1) to verify the reported figures, or (2) to seek independent verification.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Functioning of Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (19 Jan 2021)

Steve Aiken: ...servers. There had been attempts to move beyond the control of government communication systems, which are provided at considerable expense. They are equipped with the means to prevent their being hacked and with added levels of security, which should be of concern to everybody in the Government at the moment. Not only is this a matter of increasing accountability and transparency, it is a...
