January 04 11:03 2018 Print This Article

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.”
