North Antrim MP Ian Paisley has welcomed the arrest made by the PSNI in relation to the TalkTalk hacking attack. The DUP MP received a briefing today from police in relation to the TalkTalk security breach and he said
‘The type of attack suffered by TalkTalk once again highlights the significant danger that cybercrime poses and the impact that it can have on the community. Virtually every household will have banking or other personal information stored by companies on computer systems and should those systems be compromised it can leave people vulnerable to a range of crimes.
I welcome that the PSNI have secured evidence and been able to make this arrest. I know that in this instance they are working hand in hand with the Metropolitan police as they investigate a crime which has caused concern to people right across the United Kingdom.
I will be meeting with police again to seek updates on the progress of the investigation.’
