Emergency changes made to MPs’ IT system after ‘cyber security’ alert

Emergency changes were being made to MPs’ IT system yesterday after a “cyber security incident”. A high-importance email was sent out by Parliamentary officials warning MPs to remain extra vigilant and look out for suspicious emails or activity . The email, sent just after lunchtime, said: “We are currently investigating a cyber security incident.

“We are going to be making some emergency changes to the IT network which may cause some disruption.”

The email was sent hours after reports that British politicians’ passwords had been traded by Russian hackers.

The Times reported that 1,000 Parliamentary workers’ logins were traded

The Times claimed 1,000 MPs and parliamentary staff, 7,000 police employees and more than 1,000 Foreign Office staff were in the troves sold or swapped on Russian-speaking hacking sites. Cabinet ministers including Education Secretary Justine Greening and Business Secretary Greg Clark were said to be among the haul. However, a House of Commons spokesman would not confirm whether or not the probe was related to The Times’ report.

Officials also declined to say how many email accounts were affected, when the incident occurred or what it was. The spokesman said: The Houses of Parliament are currently investigating a cyber security incident.

“Like all responsible organisations we have to respond to constantly evolving threats . We have systems in place to protect member and staff accounts and to prevent unauthorised access to information .

We are working to investigate the incident and will be taking the necessary steps to protect our systems.

Crown Court upholds our decision to refuse ACS status to Extreme Security Solutions Ltd

Crown Court Upholds Our Decision To Refuse ACS Status To Extreme Security Solutions Ltd

On Friday 9 June 2017 at Chester Crown Court, we successfully defended an appeal by Extreme Security Solutions Limited against a decision to refuse the company’s application for Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) status.

The company appealed to the Crown Court after their initial appeal was dismissed by South Cheshire Magistrates Court on 21 February 2017. The company, based in Macclesfield, applied for the ACS in November 2015 after a similarly-named ACS company, Extreme Security Limited, went into liquidation with significant debts and owing tens of thousands of pounds to HM Revenue & Customs. Mark Longden, of Chapel-en-le-Frith, was a director of both companies. There was another compliance issue as one of the previous directors of Extreme Security Solutions Ltd, Mark Longden s wife Amie Longden, had been unlicensed for several months prior to obtaining an SIA licence in March 2016.

After an investigation,we also discovered that the company had been supplying an unlicensed security guard to a local college over an extended period. The guard, when interviewed by ourinvestigators, admitted that he had been unlicensed since 2009 and had problems with alcoholism and debt. The company’s application for ACS was refused in September 2016. Their initial appeal against the decision was dismissed by South Cheshire Magistrates Court in February this year. New evidence produced at the Crown Court appeal also showed that the company, on its website, was incorrectly claiming to already hold ACS status.

Dismissing the company s further appeal at Chester Crown Court, Recorder Harry Narayan stated that the deployment of an unlicensed guard to a college was a serious lapse by the company, given that the licensable status of the guard was easily checkable . He also noted that the failings took place over a lengthy time and at a place where persons were entitled to be protected and where those in authority should be properly checked . The fact that the company s website claimed that it already held ACS status demonstrated that the company is not being run as it should be . Extreme Security Solutions Limited were ordered to pay our legal costs of 2976, in addition to the 4067 costs ordered previously by South Cheshire Magistrates Court.

Lisa Targowska, our Legal Deputy Director, said:

“We are grateful the Court agreed with us that this company is simply not fit and proper to be awarded ACS status. We will continue do our utmost to protect the integrity of the ACS and keep unsuitable businesses out of the scheme.”

Scotland’s roads thrown into chaos as security ramped up at Fife naval base in wake of Manchester bombing

security threat chaos

But the measures were still warmly welcomed by those affected as a ring of steel is thrown up around key locations

SCOTLAND S new national security level caused major road delays today as commuters got to grips with enhanced security measures ordered by Prime Minister Theresa May in the wake of the Manchester bombing. But the measures were still warmly welcomed by those affected as a ring of steel is thrown up around key locations including the strategically important dockyards and travel hubs in Fife.

Scotland's Roads Thrown Into Chaos As Security Ramped Up At Fife Naval Base In Wake Of Manchester Bombing

Increased security checks are standard when threat level is critical at naval bases

Staff at Rosyth Dockyard, an integration site for the Royal Navy s newest aircraft carriers, went through rigorous security checks this morning causing huge tailbacks towards Dunfermline and Edinburgh. Commuters waited for hours as traffic came to a standstill, while bus services were thrown into chaos.

A union chief said increased security at naval bases is standard practice during heightened terror threats. Bob MacGregor, regional officer at Unite, said: We at Unite welcome this decision which will give our members increased protection. The move comes two days after Manchester Arena was nail bombed by terrorist Salman Abedi1.

The Brit-born suicide bomber, 22, was unmasked 2as Theresa May raised the UK threat level to critical for the first time in ten years with up to 3,800 soldiers on the streets because another terror attack could be imminent .

The frantic family of missing Scots teen Eilidh MacLeod3 are continuing their desperate search for her following the attack. The 14-year-old had travelled to see pop star Ariana Grande with pal Laura MacIntyre4, 15, when horror struck on Monday night. The pair had made the long trip south from Barra to see their favourite singer.

Laura s relatives received news last night that the teenager had been found alive in hospital and is being treated for serious burns.5

Two girls from Barra attended the gig in Manchester

Police Scotland announced this morning there would be increased security at sites across Scotland. Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: My thoughts and those of everyone at Police Scotland continue to be with those who have lost loved ones or who were injured in the attack in Manchester.

With the threat level now at Critical, we have now established a multi-agency co-ordination centre to lead and co-ordinate the response across the country along with key partners.

Police Scotland will be increasing our operations to protect the people of Scotland, our businesses and public places.

This may include a range of options aimed at increasing security at these sites, reassuring residents, businesses, workers and visitors so they can go about their daily lives as normally as possible.

Yesterday morning, we increased the number of armed police on patrol at key locations and the public should expect to see armed officers on foot patrol.

We are reviewing all significant events along with event organisers taking place within the next 14 days and will increase the security footprint around those events where it is deemed appropriate.

We have well-rehearsed plans to respond to major incidents and we will be continuing to work with our partners to address the current heightened threat.

However, there is no intelligence to suggest there is any specific threat to Scotland but I would ask the public to remain alert and report anything suspicious.
