31 Oct Heathrow Airport Launches Probe Into USB Stick Incident
London Heathrow Airport will be conducting an investigation into an incident that involves an unprotected USB stick which contains 2.5 GB worth of security information, including information on the Queen’s security and routes.
The USB drive, which was turned over to a Sunday Mirror reporter, had 76 folders of files which included the location of all CCTVs in the airport, as well as escape shafts and tunnels of Heathrow’s Express train station.
The airport administration is closely working with the London Metropolitan Police to figure out how the information got smuggled out of the airport’s offices.
