As a symbol of GCHQ’s continued commitment to diversity and pride in its workforce, the iconic satellite dishes that line the cliff tops at Bude have been lit up in rainbow colours in celebration of International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Our work relies on the constant sharing of knowledge and ideas. It’s a collaborative approach that recognises people’s strengths, respects their expertise and enables them to develop a variety of innovative solutions.
The GCHQ budget is paid from a combination of the Single Intelligence Account and the National Cyber Security Programme. This also provides the funding for the other UK security and intelligence agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
GCHQ places great importance on having the right culture and ethos. We are very aware of the responsibility that comes with the nature of our work, and in addition to our legal accountability we also take the ethical considerations surrounding our mission seriously.
Philip Hammond, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, highlights the important work of the CCA, the cyber equivalent of the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), by making public its existence.
