Computer Hacking

Asked whether Government computer networks were vulnerable to computer hacking and whether there was any cross government advice on protecting critical infrastructure like computer networks the PMS said that the Government had in place procedures and mechanisms to deal with such issues. Asked whether the Prime Minister had discussed the issue with Chancellor Merkel after the Chancellor had raised the same issue with Chinese authorities, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister and Chancellor Merkel had had a general discussion about relations with China. This was focused more on global, economic and political issues arising from the EU’s relationship with China rather than this particular issue. Asked if the Government had raised the issue with China, the PMS said that if there were specific concerns identified then it would be taken up, but it would be best to check with the Home Office on the specifics.
