Last quote about GCHQ

Jeremy Fleming
It remains the case that much of what we do must remain secret. But I welcome the shift. If GCHQ is to continue to help keep the country safe, then protecting the digital homeland – keeping our citizens safe and free online – must become and remain as much part of our mission as our global intelligence reach and our round-the-clock efforts against terrorism. In dealing with these cases … the NCSC drew on GCHQ's data, analytical capabilities, skills and partnerships, which help us to prevent attacks as well as respond to them.feedback

Robert Hannigan said: “If you are spending a disproportionate amount of your holiday unsuccessfully attempting to separate your children from WiFi or their digital devices, do not despair. Your poor parenting may be helping them and saving the country. The assumption that time online or in front of a screen is life wasted needs challenging. It is driven by fear.”.

We know that industry is crying out for these skills in volume; not just a hand-picked elite needed to work at GCHQ to ensure national security, but an entire generation of skilled people to protect British industry.feedback

I can't see, particularly as many of these companies are US-based, that legislation is the answer on this. I don't think there is a magic solution where you can just legislate it away. Everyone would like a simple answer on encryption and unfortunately it is very difficult. The best that you can do is work with the companies in a co-operative way to find ways around it.feedback

They appeared to be convinced of the need to obtain Clinton's private emails and make them public, and they had a reckless lack of interest in whether the emails came from a Russian cut-out. Indeed, they made it quite clear to me that it made no difference to them who hacked the emails or why they did so, only that the emails be found and made public before the election.feedback

The extremists of Isis use messaging and social media services such as Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp, and a language their peers understand. GCHQ and its sister agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service, cannot tackle these challenges at scale without greater support from the private sector. Increasingly services not only host the material of violent extremism or child exploitation, but are the routes for the facilitation of crime and terrorism.feedback

What lingers for Trump may be what deals – on what terms – he did after the financial crisis of 2008 to borrow Russian money when others in the west apparently would not lend to him. For Trump and the administration, that is. The only possible explanation is that Trump started tweeting without understanding how the NSA-GCHQ relationship actually works.feedback

Flacks for Fox News are going to need a spring break. Yesterday, senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano reemerged on the network’s airwaves after getting in trouble for alleging - based on unnamed sources - that the United Kingdom assisted President Barack Obama in surveilling presidential candidate Donald Trump. “You’ve had a few quiet days, ” said host Bill Hemmer, in a clever allusion to Napolitano’s short time on the Fox News bench. After Napolitano surfaced these claims on an opinion show - the idiotic “Fox & Friends” - a representative from the network’s news side, Shepard Smith, memorably countered them on air: “Fox News cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary. Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way, full stop.” Smith was forced to issue that statement after a spokesman for the British GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) issued a statement thrashing the Napolitano report, which had been cited by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.feedback

Andrew Napolitano

He used GCHQ. What is that? It's the initials for the British intelligence-finding agency. So, simply by having two people saying to them president needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump's conversations, involving president-elect Trump, he's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on this. Putting the published accounts and common-sense together, this leads to a lot.feedback

Jeremy Fleming

I don't think the rubbish being uttered by the Trump camp will affect the day-to-day operational co-operation between the UK and US intelligence agencies, but it'll be important to remind our partners there that more consideration and respect need to be afforded to the intelligence communities by the Trump administration.feedback

Andrew Napolitano

So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.feedback

Javier Ruiz - Open Rights Group

We know that there is a very close collaboration between the UK and US intelligence agencies. There is nothing in UK law to stop GCHQ from conducting targeted interception of President Trump's communications before he became President – or even now. The lack of transparency about the US-UK intelligence collaboration arrangements makes oversight impossible and encourages these kind of accusations, however unlikely they are.feedback

Sean Spicer

He's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on it. Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ.feedback

Paul Chichester

I think so. It's an emerging threat that we're all grappling with. It's not just a challenge for government. I think you can see some of the social media companies already looking at tackling some of that. I think perhaps they feel they've been exploited and they're looking to tackle that as well. Actually, I think it currently looks like an area we can collaborate and work together with industry to tackle this.feedback

Paul Chichester

Cybercriminals will always be looking for new techniques. They'll certainly be keen to look at how they can use them. Any time when somebody discloses potentially new ways of attacking systems then the criminals are going to be really keen to weaponise them before people have had a chance to fix them.feedback

Paul Chichester

For us any leak of data, or any leak of vulnerabilities, in an uncontrolled way, whoever does it doesn't help the security industry. We believe in responsible disclosure. We believe in if you understand vulnerabilities you have ways to disclose them responsibly. I wouldn't in any way shape or form endorse the mass leaking of anything like that.feedback

GCHQ and its sister agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), cannot tackle these challenges at scale without greater support from the private sector, including the largest U.S. technology companies which dominate the web.feedback

Robert Hannigan - Government Communications Headquarters

As you know, I have also initiated the greatest internal change within GCHQ for 30 years and I feel that we are now well on the way to being fit for the next generation of security challenges to the UK in the digital age. After a good deal of thought, I have decided that this is the right time to move on and to allow someone else to lead GCHQ through its next phase. While this work must remain secret, you will know how many lives have been saved in this country and overseas by the work of GCHQ.feedback

Gary Stewart

The opening of the GCHQ Cyber Accelerator is a significant step forward for the UK's ambitions to be a global hub for cyber talent.feedback

Andrew Tyrie

Legacy systems, human error and deliberate attack have resulted in unacceptable interruptions to vital banking services and weakened the public's confidence in the banking system as a whole. The recent attack on Tesco Bank is only the latest example of criminals exploiting vulnerabilities in the banking industry's IT systems.feedback

William Hague

It has been suggested that GCHQ uses our partnership with the United States to get around UK law, obtaining information that they can not legally obtain in the United Kingdom. I wish to be absolutely clear that this accusation is baseless.feedback
