New forensic hope in mysterious death of 'spy in the bag': Strand of hair found on MI6 analyst Gareth Williams's hand may shed new light on case thanks to advances in DNA methods, say police
Mr Williams's naked body was found inside holdall - padlocked from the outside - in bath of his flat in Pimlico, central London, in August 2010 Keys were found inside bag with the mathematician, 31, who worked for GCHQ Advances in DNA and forensic techniques mean strand of hair found on his hand – from which experts could not extract DNA profile – may shed light on the case
Detectives who said the GCHQ codebreaker Gareth Williams's death was "probably an accident" in 2013 are launching a forensic review after new clues were unearthed last week The Met Police has launched a forensic review into the death of an MI6 spy found locked in a bag in 2010.

It's still an incredibly young field of research, however firms from Google to IBM believe quantum computing will become a reality in the next decade. In the U.K., a company called Arqit is quietly preparing businesses for cyberattacks in the age of quantum computing. Quantum computers will be able to do specific tasks much faster than classical machines and that could be a problem for today's encryption standards.
That such schemes can run all the way through the House of Lords speaks volumes about who runs this country, even under a Tory Government Recent weeks have seen a few small victories in a crucial fight: to stop unqualified busybodies telling people how to think and behave.
Arqit's low-earth orbit satellites will generate encryption codes composed of infinite random numbers to try to resist a quantum attack The world’s top spies are working on the assumption that their most secure encryption techniques are already compromised. A new kind of threat is emerging to the security of the internet.
No matter our background or beliefs, we all want control over our personal information, our private views and our sensitive data. That control is key to our autonomy and our liberty. But in 2013 Edward Snowden pulled back the curtain on how governments had used the excuse of the “war on terror” to erode that liberty.
By Aled Thomas Local Democracy Reporter BULK interception of online data - email addresses and messages and website data - by intelligence agency GCHQ in Cheltenham violated the right to privacy and was “not in accordance with the law”, the grand chamber of the European court of human rights has ruled.

The UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) used bulk interception to unlawfully breach citizens' privacy and free expression rights, Europe's highest human rights court has ruled.
The ECHR ruling came on the back of revelations in 2013 from Edward Snowdon about the extent of surveillance by intelligence agencies GCHQ must get approval from judges before carrying out mass surveillance, the European Court of Human Rights has ruled, after declaring that decades of data harvesting by British spies was not lawful.
British spies DID breach public's privacy by harvesting vast amounts of communications data from UK citizens and people around the world, European court rules
Revelations by Edward Snowden showed that GCHQ and its U.S. counterpart were sucking up vast amounts of communications from across the world ECHR ruled UK breached right to respect for private life communications Regime for obtaining comms data from service providers also violated rights GCHQ breached fundamental human rights by intercepting and harvesting vast amounts of communications from British citizens and people all over the world, the European Court of Human Rights ruled today.
Judges ruled that UK's spy agency's broke privacy rules Surveillance methods used by GCHQ were “not in accordance with the law”, the European Court of Human Rights has ruled. Judges highlighted three areas of concern, including how the Cheltenham spy agency carried out bulk interception of online communications, and its regime for the collection of data.
Campaigners hailed the European Court of Human Rights ruling over mass surveillance after a legal challenge in the wake of Edward Snowden's whistleblowing revelations Britain's spy agency used unlawful methods to intercept messages online and collect data, the European Court of Human Rights has ruled. In a damning judgement, the court's grand chamber also said GCHQ broke privacy rules with its bulk interception regime and failed to offer proper protection to confidential journalistic material.
Judge warns of electronic ‘Big Brother’ across Europe after court finds UK broke law with bulk data interception
Dissenting judge says ruling ‘alters the existing balance in Europe between the right to respect for private life and public security interests’ A judge has warned of the potential for an electronic “Big Brother” in Europe following a legal battle sparked by the Edward Snowden leaks.
The UK spy agency GCHQ’s methods for bulk interception of online communications violated the right to privacy and the regime for collection of data was unlawful, the grand chamber of the European court of human rights has ruled. In what was described as a “landmark victory” by Liberty, one of the applicants, the judges also found the bulk interception regime breached the right to freedom of expression and contained insufficient protections for confidential journalistic material but said the decision to operate a bulk interception regime did not of itself violate the European convention on human rights.
Britain's GCHQ eavesdropping agency breached fundamental human rights by intercepting and harvesting vast amounts of communications, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on Tuesday. Revelations by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden showed that GCHQ and the U.S. National Security Agency were sucking up vast amounts of communications from across the world,including on their own citizens.
