Move aside, Russia! Information Commissioner views teenage hackers as bigger threats

Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has warned Britain's civil servants that instead of panicking over the cyber threat emanating from Russia, they should be more wary of teenage hackers operating out of their bedrooms.

Even though Russia continues to draw the attention of Britain's cyber experts, teenage hackers in the country continue to pose a major threat to public and private enterprises in Britain.

In a recent speech, Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham told the heads of civil services and other government departments that rather than worrying about cyber-attacks launched by Russia, they should be concerned about the threat posed by teenage hackers who operate out of their bedrooms.
