UK refusal to cooperate with Belgian hacking inquiry condemned
For at least two years ending in 2013, the British intelligence service was probably spying within the state-owned company’s networks on the instruction of UK ministers, according to leaks from a judicial inquiry presented to Belgium’s national security council this week.

When asked by the Belgian federal prosecutor’s office to cooperate with the investigation into the alleged hacking, the UK Home Office is said to have refused, claiming: “The United Kingdom believes that this could jeopardise our sovereignty, security and public order.”

According to the Belgian newspaper De Standaard, the prosecutor’s office regarded the response as “exceptional between EU states, and something that could lead to a diplomatic incident”.

Tech companies targeted in mission to develop new spy tools
SEPTEMBER 24, 2018 | Financial Times | David Bond, Security Editor.

an £85m venture capital fund backed by intelligence chiefs. The National Security Strategic Investment Fund (NSSIF) was announced by chancellor Philip Hammond in last year’s budget to boost investment in the UK’s security technology sector.

This week, the government-owned British Business Bank, which is running the fund, will begin to encourage private fund managers to promote the programme with a view to raising additional money from fund managers and private investors.

It is thought to be the first time the UK’s main intelligence and security agencies, led by the foreign intelligence service MI6, have actively looked to invest in the private sector....To guide companies considering applying for funding, the government has set out 11 “technology areas” that are of greatest interest to the UK national security community, which also includes the domestic security service MI5, digital and signals intelligence agency GCHQ and the National Crime Agency.

These include data analytics and artificial intelligence, technologies to track financial information and new computing tools that highlight or obscure identifying information about individuals and groups.....Warner said last week there was nevertheless “an aversion among civil servants to working with start-ups for fear they will fail”.

Writing in the Telegraph, Mr Warner added: “Singapore and Norway have shown it is possible for governments to act more like venture capitalists, using sovereign wealth funds to back innovative new players.”

We ask the Home Secretary why UK intelligence agencies have unlawfully analysed PI's data | Privacy International
ing intelligence agency, MI5, today admitted that it captured and read Privacy International's private data as part of its Bulk Communications Data (BCD) and Bulk Personal Datasets (BPD) programmes, which hoover up massive amounts of the public's data. In further startling legal disclosures, all three of the UK's primary intelligence agencies - GCHQ, MI5, and MI6 - also admitted that they unlawfully gathered data about Privacy International or its staff. You can read the full press release here.

We have therefore written to the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid MP, to ask him to:

Confirm what changes he will make to the Investigatory Powers Act as a result of last week's ECHR judgement;

Instruct the security and intelligence agencies to provide to our Counsel and ourselves a full explanation as to why the agencies unlawfully held and analysed PI's data; and

UK spies broke law for 15 years, but what can you do? shrugs judge • The Register
Privacy International, the charity which first brought this case two years ago, lost its attempt to overturn an earlier ruling that legal oversight of GCHQ's bulk spying regime was fit for purpose. It also failed to have the agencies' dragnet surveillance practices declared incompatible with Article 8 of the EU Convention on Human Rights, which is a privacy right.
