Statement in response to reports about computer processor flaws

Nigel Houlden, ICO Head of Technology has given a statement in response to reports about computer processor flaws.

Nigel Houlden, ICO Head of Technology, said:

“We are aware of reports detailing potentially significant flaws in a wide range of computer processors, which could affect various operating systems. We strongly recommend that organisations with affected hardware test and apply patches from suppliers as soon as they are released.

“All organisations have a duty to keep personal information in their care secure and that involves having layered security defences in place, including procedures for applying patches and updates, to help to mitigate the risk of exploitation.”
