MPs are concerned hackers could threaten UK’s nuclear capabilities, according to a new study. In 2017, the UK was hit by a cyber-attack on the NHS and another that interfered with parliamentary emails. And a year on, a survey of politicians has revealed that two thirds of MPs believe such threats are among the biggest cyber security risks facing the UK. A YouGov survey of 100 MPs, published ahead of a Commons meeting on cyber security, revealed 62 per cent believe the risk to critical national infrastructure is serious. Forty-two per cent of Tory MPs questioned said that one of the most serious threats the country faces is the potential for hackers to compromise the country’s nuclear capabilities.
