    MI5 Huawei

    The head of MI5 has said he has no reason to think Britain’s intelligence-sharing relationship with the United States will be damaged if the Chinese tech giant Huawei is given access to the UK’s 5G network. The Government has come under intense pressure from the US administration not to allow Huawei a role in building 5G network amid fears that granting a Chinese firm access to the communications network could be a security risk.

    The topic of breach normalisation has been examined heavily before, but most of the discussion has centred around its obvious, negative effect - the desensitisation and numbing of society to each passing incident.

    Tangible effects are rarely immediately apparent in the aftermath of a breach. News reports consequently lack visceral impact. It’s not immediately clear where data ends up -- users are inclined to think there is a high chance that their data, representing one line in a tomb of a database, might never be deployed against them.

    “I've actually had journalists tell me this in the past. They would actually say it's difficult for us to talk about because we don't have a picture or video or something we can frame it against to capture people's attention.”

    But Pinkard also says there are also positive effects to the phenomenon.

    A hacking group with links to Iran has been attempting to compromise thousands of accounts belonging to US electric utilities and oil and gas firms amid rising fears the Iranian Republic is planning a cyber retaliation in the wake of the assassination of major general Qasem Soleimani.

    On Thursday, industrial control system security firm Dragos detailed new hacking activity which the company attributed to a group of state-sponsored hackers it calls Magnallium which has been previously linked to the Iranian regime. The same group is also known as APT33, Refined Kitten or Elfin.
