USB stuff-up puts Queen at risk
A USB drive containing security information on Heathrow Airport, including security measures used to protect the Queen (pictured) when she uses the facility, has been found on a London street. A member of the public found the USB drive and turned it over to The Sunday Mirror, the newspaper reported. The device contained 76 folders, including information on how to access restricted areas. The data wasn’t encrypted. Heathrow Airport says in a statement that security plans have been reviewed and the airport remains “vigilant to evolving threats by updating our procedures on a daily basis”. Security officials have “launched an internal investigation to understand how this happened and are taking steps to prevent a similar occurrence in future”.
