Last quote about GCHQ

Robert Hannigan - Government Communications Headquarters
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

The American public needs to know more about this rather than less, because a lot of the government surveillance authorities will expire in the fall and there will be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us. And the more the American public knows about this, the more informed their and Congress's decisions will be. I think a lot more's going to come. The British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump's calls.”.

Andrew Napolitano

Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn't use the NSA (National Security Agency), he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ. What is that? It's the initials for the British intelligence finding agency.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

Andrew Napolitano

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. There's no American fingerprints on this. What happened to the guy who ordered this? Resigned three days after Donald Trump was inaugurated.feedback

Robert Hannigan - Government Communications Headquarters

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
