TLDR:

  • Britain to detail cyber security threat from China amid growing concerns of interference before election.
  • Deputy Prime Minister to address Parliament, possibly announcing sanctions against Beijing.

Britain is set to reveal details of the cyber security threat posed by China, with Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden scheduled to address Parliament on the issue. Concerns about Chinese interference have heightened, especially after a hack on the country’s Electoral Commission, which is expected to be attributed to Beijing. The government has also warned about Chinese espionage activities targeting British officials in sensitive positions. MI5 has reported a significant increase in investigations related to Chinese activity in recent years, with a rare security alert issued in 2022 about a suspected Chinese spy involved in political interference activities in Britain.
