MI6 must partner with tech giants to keep foreign adversaries at bay – even if it means stepping out of the shadows to do it, secret service boss says in first public speech

Britain's intelligence agencies must be prepared to work with tech giants to develop world-class technologies that will keep foreign adversaries at bay, the chief of MI6 is warning.

Richard Moore says the pace of technological advance, from artificial intelligence to quantum computing, means the agencies can no longer simply devise their own solutions to meet the challenges.

In a rare public address, he will acknowledge this has meant a 'sea change' in the culture of his organisation which has traditionally prioritised secrecy above all else.
