Cyber Insights for 7th December 2016 from The National Cyber Skills Centre
The Government has just passed legislation to store twelve months worth of your online activity.
Look I know you are busy, no doubt knee deep in tinsel, wrapping paper, food preparation and all the other festive delights that go into making the holiday season work. I’m also aware that by any measure it’s been a heck of a year, so many things have changed, so many things that were unthinkable just twelve short months ago are now a stark reality.
With all of that going on you could be excused for not noticing that the government passed a bill at the end of last month allowing them to keep an eye on and store all your electronic communications, just to make sure that you are not up to anything naughty. I’m guessing you’ve put down that tinsel now as that can come as quite a surprise.
