Royal Family news – The Queen steps up online security as monarchy at ‘high risk’ of cyber attack from hackers

THE Queen has stepped up defences against hackers after learning the Royal Family is a high-risk target.

Her Majesty, 95, has relished engagements via video call in lockdown and chats to grandson Harry and wife Meghan in the US.

Her cyber security experts say in a report there is now a high rather than medium risk of unauthorised access to Royal Household data.

The warning, written by Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, is thought to refer to crooks in China and Russia.

It warns the effect of hacking would be: “Reputational damage, penalties and/or legal action against the Household or members of staff.”
