MI6 chief says cyber brings ‘potentially existential challenge’

In a rare public speech the head of the British MI6 Alex Younger has several interesting perspectives on the role that cyber will play in future espionage efforts:

‘We are evolving rapidly. Cyber is now our fastest-growing directorate. We are shifting our focus to the nexus between humans and technology.’”

“In the cyber age, newcomers will often be better equipped to solve problems than those, like me, steeped in experience can be,”

“Simply put, we’ve got to innovate faster than they can. Indeed, future generations would not forgive us if it were otherwise,”

“Much of the evolving state threat is about our opponents’ increasingly innovative exploitation of modern technology.”
