Tech firms distancing themselves from spies thanks to Snowden – MI6 chief | RT UK

Spy chief Alex Younger says the leaks from Edward Snowden have undermined the relationship between tech firms and intelligence agencies.

The head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), otherwise known as MI6, made the comments at a conference on The Ethos and Profession of Intelligence at The George Washington University in Washington, DC.

He spoke alongside CIA Director John Brennan and counterparts from Australia and Afghanistan.

Technology firms have sought to distance themselves from government surveillance operations since Edward Snowden revealed the scale of intrusion into people’s internet activities by US and British intelligence agencies.
