Jonathan Djanogly calls for review of nuclear deterrent's protections against cyber attack
23rd January 2017
Jonathan Djanogly calls on the Government to review our Trident nuclear deterrent system’s protections against possible electronic counter-measures.
Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)
In certain theatres of war, such as Ukraine, Russia has been testing and refining its electronic and cyber-warfare techniques. Although I am not blaming Russia for this incident, will the opportunity now be taken to review the system’s protections against possible electronic counter-measures?
Sir Michael Fallon
Yes. I was in Ukraine last week and we discussed this, among other matters. Of course, we are taking very good care to ensure that our deterrent is properly protected against any new technologies that our adversaries might get hold of.
