In an interesting chat with the Today programme, the serving boss of the UK’s home security agency stated that it is becoming more difficult to obtain online information.
The conversation is well worth a listen, including the following soundbites from the MI5 boss:
- The terrorism threat is the “most serious threat Britain faces in security terms”
- Six alleged terror plots have been foiled in the past 12 months, which Mr Parker said was the highest number he could recall in his 32-year career “certainly the highest number since 9/11”
- MI5 had to “make choices” about where to put resources, and make sure they were “focused where the sharpest threat is”
