Telecommunications: Security

Volume 707: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the security implications of the integration of behavioural targeting technology and other new technologies in core telecommunications infrastructure. [HL755]

The question of whether behavioural targeting technology, or indeed any other technology connected to telecommunication networks, poses a security risk is a matter for the owner of those networks. The Government have not commissioned a separate assessment of the security of any behavioural targeting technology and have not received any representations on this matter.
